The following steps will show how to create individual ZIP files from a collection of folders.
The process will create a ZIP file for each folder – naming the ZIP file the name of the folder.
For example, if you have a number of folders called:
it will create example1.zip, example2.zip and example3.zip.
- The first thing you need to do, if you haven’t already, is move all the folders into a single location – making sure it only contains the folders you want to create zips from.
- Now you need to create a new text file called zipall.cmd and copy in the following information
for /d %%X in (*) do "%ProgramFiles%\7-Zip\7z.exe" a "%%X.zip" "%%X\"
- Now run the zipall.cmd file and the zip files will be created.
