I have 04 foders that I want to zip into one folder
example:
wzzip  c:\backup\07302004\ClsTucUs07302004.zip  c:\backup\07302004\clsinc07302004  c:\backup\07302004\clsshare07302004  c:\backup\07302004\tuc07302004  c:\backup\07302004\users07302004

when I run this batch file the following error shows up:
warning "name in zip file repeated"

warninig " First Full name: c:\backup\07302004\clsshare07302004\cls.dbf"
warninig " First Full name: c:\backup\07302004\clsinc07302004\cls.dbf"

So, is there anyway to add a switch either to overwrite or ignore the cls.dbf file ???

Any help?

Thanks

Instead of the above command try using the -p option, like this :

wzzip -p c:\backup\07302004\ClsTucUs07302004.zip  c:\backup\07302004\clsinc07302004  c:\backup\07302004\clsshare07302004  c:\backup\07302004\tuc07302004  c:\backup\07302004\users07302004

There is a difference in the case of the options. You should use the small p. There are more options that you can use like recursing subfolders, try -r

You can get a list of all these option in the wzzip help file. try the command wzzip /?

Hope I have been of some help.

I do have objections. Why has the Delete request been made? I think we have provided valid responses which have surely helped the user. Or he would (and should) have posted otherwise. I think I should be awarded points.

Hope I was not too rude.. :-)
