Winzip/Wzunzip batch file

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hello experts.

The following bactch file unziups folders in the "decrypted" directory, leaving behind the original zip file. All the zip files are actually folders that have ben zipped.

I need the batch to unzip these folders to c:\unzipped, without leaving the orignal behind in c:\decrypted.

Please help, thanks!

@echo off
set BaseDir=c:\decrypted
for /r "%BaseDir%" %%A in (*.zip) do (
  md "%%~dpnA"
  "C:\Program Files\WinZip\WZunZIP.EXE" -o "%%A" "%%~dpnA"
