I am trying to compress a folder in a Batch file. I would also like to know how to uncompress the files I have compressed. Can someone please help me out.

Winzip used to have a command line interface for zipping and unzipping files via batch script. I think they still have it as an add-on to the application.

What compression scheme and tool did you use to compress?
There are many types of compression, zip, arc, tar, cab, lha, etc.

Are you sure that the tool you used to compress does not already have a command-line uncompression command?
