I'm attempting to create a batch file to archive multiple folders into separate .ZIP files. I found the below command, but wonder how to get this to create a standard .zip file instead of .7z file:
for /d %%X in (*) do "c:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a "%%X.7z" "%%X\" -mx=9 -ms=on -md=26 -mfb=256

Thank you so much! I originally tried changing .7z to .zip, but failed to try removing switches. I presume there is not a way to control the compression level (i.e.: mx=9) with the .zip format? Thank you again.
review help CHM file (7-zip.chm)...
Command Line Version > Switches > "-m (Set compression Method) switch"
your original recipe modified -- hint: no solid ZIP archives
for /d %%X in (*) do "c:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a "%%X.zip" "%%X\" -mx=9 -md=26 -mfb=256
unless you are a chef, just do...
for /d %%X in (*) do "c:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a "%%X.zip" "%%X\" -mx
Thanks, Fernando!!! It worked!!! If you're ever in Pittsburgh, I owe you a beer!
