when I unzip a folder, do not copy the folder, only the files

Post by *Melcu Suzana »

hello. I have a problem. When I unzip a folder, and want to copy on other partition, TotalCms doesn't unzip and copy the folder as it it, but only the files from that folder. Why? How can I change to unzip and copy the entire folder?

Is the option "Unpack path names if stored with files" in the "Unpack files" dialog enabled?

If you hit Alt-F9 on the archive how can one overlook that option ?
Its the first of the 3 checkboxes in this dialog.

As i guess this is a question of terminology - "zip" is really "compressed file", not "compressed folder" and sometimes does not contain real folder, files only. So rather "Unpack each archive to a seperate subdir (name of the archive)" may be applied here and gives desired result.
