relative path zipped files
Jul 7th, 2006 at 11:54am
 
Hi,
first things first: our directory structure:
WatchedFolder>folder1>folder2>files

I zip the complete folder2 (the one containing the files) and select "store relative path". I would expect that the path stored in the zipfile would be like "folder2\" however when I open the zipfile and look at the path, it states: "folder1\folder2\".

Is there a way that WD only stores the information of the actualy zipped folder, like Winzip does?

Thanks,
John

Hi,

Sorry, but at the moment the ZIP plugin does not support that. It will store either the complete directory (WatchedFolder>folder1>folder2) or the directory relative to the monitored directory (folder1>folder2). I guess what you want is just the "parent" directory (folder2 in this case). I will see if that option can be added in the next release.

Thanks Gert for the response.
I believe we will have to find another -temporary?- solution for now.
Let's wait and see what the new release brings us.
Anyway, it's a good product and we'll intend to continue using it.

Cheers,
John

Hi,

Thanks for "pinging" me  Cheesy
I just finished coding this feature in the Auto Zip plugin, the new release will probably be this weekend or next week.
