Combine multiple Zip files into a single archive

  • I have 200 zip files and I was wondering if its possible to combine all the zip files into a single zip archive.

    But not create a new archive containing the zips.

    At the moment the only method I can come up with is to extract all the zips and create a new zip adding all the extracted files.

    Is there an easier way. Like, select all zip files and select ‘Combine archives’? Or similar?

    Unfortunatelly no, but you can extract faster with multi extract feature or from Windows Explorer by selecing few archives at once.

  • Thanks, thats the method I am currently using. When I thought about my original goal, your solution works just fine.

    In Vista I use the Windows Backup application for weekly backups. I have a backup set from 9 months ago at 4 GB’s. So what I am doing now is extracting all the zips, deleeting the files I know I dont need and I’ll re-pack them in a 7z.

    Burn to DVD and toss it in the closet :D

    My original plan was to combine the zips, then delete un-needed files. Then convert it to 7z. But your suggestion is faster and easier.
