Hi Scott, I've never had need to use anything but basic unzip features, until now. What you say makes sense, else why would it have need to store the original file path, and after spending 2 days on extracting them and building a folder system manually I surely want to know how to do it easily next time. I looked around and found it and now I could kick myself. I didn't turn that feature off I just didn't use it!! I've always dragged and dropped the files from the zip file to wherever I wanted them. If I had simply used the big giant EXTRACT button on top it would have done it all for me in seconds what it took me probably 8 hours to do manually. Pass the dunce cap over, my turn to wear it for a while. lol Thanks Scott. =) Pam -----Original Message----- From: pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:pcductape-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx]On Behalf Of Scott McNay Sent: Tuesday, October 28, 2003 6:17 AM To: Pam Subject: [pcductape] Re: append to name from zipped file - Solved Hi Pam, Monday, October 27, 2003, 10:34:39 PM, you wrote: P> If they were included in the zip file I couldn't locate them.

I included a screen shot of what I mean. The path that you see is the path that the files were originally in, and WinZip has an option that you can turn on (which is apparently turned off, for some reason, but I think it's on by default, so you apparently turned it off at some point) to extract the files using the original paths, so that the first default.asp would go into projects\pstryker\Test3, etc. I don't have WinZip installed on this computer right now, but I've used it before and it DOES have that option. If you can't find the option, then install another Zip program. The only way that you would NOT be able to extract to the original path would be if the original path were not stored (PKZIP has the option to not store the path). Since you can see the path listed, then it was stored. I'll check at work today and see where the option is in WinZip. --Scott.
