How to compress a bunch of folders to their own zip file?
July 7, 2008 9:22 AM   Subscribe

Is there an automated script or program to create a separate zip file for each directory?

I have around 100 folders within "C:\Projects", and I would like to take each of those folders, and compress them into their own zip file:

Example:

C:\Projects\Folder1\ -> C:\Projects\Folder1.zip


The folder's are all different names, so I can't make an easy loop script (i.e. loop from Folder1 to Folder100)

Is there an automated script, or program that I can just select the root directory (C:\Projects), and it will loop through and convert all the directories for me without me having to manually select or type out all the directory names?

Xplorer2 will do this via the Tools | Command Script menu.

Highlight all the thing you'd like to zip, Tools | Command Script | "zip $N" and you're good to go. (or whatever command-line compression utility you'd like to use...)

Total Commander will also do this.

I guess this is solved, but you can also use the command prompt to do this:

for /D %i IN (c:\project\*) do zip %i.zip %i
