Specify what files to extract from the archive by providing the file mask. Provide the password that will be used to decompress encrypted archives. Decide whether the Unzip Files Action will overwrite existing files upon extraction. If necessary, it is possible to extract all files into specified folder rather than each into the subfolder it was originally located.

Password Provide password to extract password-protected archives.
Extract files File mask specifies which files will be extracted based on their name and extension. Multiple pipe-separated masks can be simultaneously used. Using path is not allowed.
Extract files with folder structure Specifies whether to preserve original folder structure when extracting the archive or to extract all archive files directly into the specified destination folder (rather than the original subfolders of the destination folder).
Replace existing files Specifies the behavior of the Unzip Files Action when a file that is being extracted from the archive has the same name as a file already existing in destination folder. If the option is enabled, the file in archive is extracted over the file in destination folder. If the option is disabled, the file already in destination folder is preserved intact by skipping the extraction of the same named file in archive.

  • When the Unzip Files Action is configured to extract particular files based on any other mask than *.* (all files), only the subfolders that actually contain at least one file matching the mask will be created. Subfolders within archive that do not contain any file matching the specified mask will not be extracted (unless file mask *.* is used).
