  • Hi, couldn't find any help on this. Sorry if this is meant to be easy to spot. I am using 7za. I want to unzip all zips in a folder and put the output into another specified folder.

    This is my syntax
    C:\Utils\7za e C:\ZIPS\*.zip -oC:\ZIPS\OUTPUT\ but the *.zip isn't picked up?

    Thanks!

      7-zip version?

       
    • The zip files are actually WinZip files! Is that a problem?

       
    • Sorry I only noticed you probably mean 3.12.

       
    • Hi there,
      i have the same problem with multiple ZIP-file extraction.
      "7z x -tzip -ppassword -oC:\data\ C:\data\zipped\*.zip"
      isn't working.

      The following error comes up:
      "7-Zip 3.12  Copyright (c) 1999-2003 Igor Pavlov  2003-12-10
      Error:
      error"

      A single file is working:
      "7z x -tzip -ppassword -oC:\data\ C:\data\zipped\singlefile.zip"
