WinZip deletes empty folders


A

Hi,

I am using winzip command line to automatically zip the only file in a
folder into a new location. I need the unzipped file to be deleted.

I am using the following syntax.

wzzip -m (moves) -ex (full compression) "c:\file\file.zip"
"c:\other\file.txt"

This process works in that it zips the file and moves it to c:\file but
it then deletes the folder c:\other which I don't want. If I leave a
file in the folder, eg leaveme.txt, then it does not delete the folder.

Any ideas?

Thanks very much,

Al

Hello

Considered the (moves) that you inserted into your command line? Maybe something to the effect (copy) will leave the original in place.

Bye
