Automate a zip file creation

I have 8 folders that have several hundred sub folders that all have a sub folder named "WEBCAST"

Is there a way to automatically find the "Webcast"  folder and create a zipfile of all the files in that folder?

Finding that folder from cmd prompt is not that difficult:

dir /a /s /b | findstr /e /i webcast

then feed that output to a zip program. Which zip application do you have?

winzip

Another point, I want to create a separate zip file for each webcast folder.

WinZIP is OK, did you already download the command line extension to it? If not do so, you will need it.

The idea is to create a list of folders with the 'dir' command and then use the command line version of winzip to create the archives.
