How to 7-zip a complete directory?



  • Hi!

    I used Winzip and Winrar before. Yesterday I changed to the new PowerArchiver.

    I tried to compress a directory ‘test’ (‘c:\programs\test’) which contains some files and subdirectories. Everything worked fine, but the name of the directory (‘test’) wasn’t stored. I have only the files and subdirectories in it.

    How can I create archives from a directory which contains the complete structure of this directory? I don’t want the complete Information (‘c:\programs\test’)!

    Thanks & Greetings,
    Christian.

    I tried to compress a directory "test’ (‘c:\programs\test’) which contains some files and subdirectories. Everything worked fine, but the name of the directory (‘test’) wasn’t stored. I have only the files and subdirectories in it.

    This is the default action, the directory test is treated as the ‘root’ folder

    To create an archiver with files stored as ‘test\file1’ etc activate ‘use normal relative path’ under “options/miscellaneous” then compress the folder ‘test’ - not the files in the folder.
