    Post Can you batch unzip files?

    Hey there.

    Is there a way to unzip several zipped files at once, or automatically have a new one unzip after the prior one finishes?

    I use WinZip 7.0

    Found another good site with live tunes, but they're zipped, and multiple unzips gets boring after a while.

    Any ideas? Can I create a batch file in DOS (I doubt it). Is there an option in WinZip to unzip a folder's worth of zipped files?

    Hmmm, I know that RAR compressed files can be unzipped all at once, but I'm not sure about ZIP files.

    Cool, I never tried it, I only mess with RAR files now. The compression algorithm for RAR is soooooo much better than ZIP.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I went to the WinZip site and actually found help

    All the zipped files are in a seperate folder. From Windows Explorer you simply drag all the zipped files into the target folder with a right click. Instead of move or copy, slect "Extract To..."

    Easy as pie.
