    Hi Everyone,

    Is it possible to create a .zip file or a folder/directory using winzip and retain the file structure of the folder/directory?
    By that I mean, if there was a folder called test and included in that folder were sub-folders called test1, test2, test3 and individual files setup.exe etc, is it possible to create a .zip file that when uncompressed retains the test1, test2 etc format?
    I've tried to do this and it zips every file to the one directory. In other words, all the files contained within test1, test2 etc are all put together.

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes I just did it with Winzip. I made folder 1 and but folder 2 inside if it and 3 in 2 and 4 in 3 etc and zipped it up.

    But when I went to open the zip I could not see anything.
    So I went to the sub folder 4 and put in a image.
    Zipped that up and opened it up and I could only see the image file.
    But when I unzipped it all the folders were there with the image.
