Yes, you can do this. Try it out. You just need to point the archive file parameter to your file, set an extraction directory" and tick "extract file paths"

Try it. If you have zipped a folder, it unzips the entire folder.

Actually what it is doing like if my folder has 4-5 files.it will unzip folder show only a single file.

If my folder has sub folders then it will unzip folder and show only one file of each sub folder.

Re: how to extract Zip Folder

I've just tried this to check what is happening on my system (v6.2.1). I can zip a folder structure with nested folders with multiple files in each of the nested folders, then unzip it back to the exact same state to a different location. Either this is a Talend bug introduced in a newer version or maybe fixed (if you are using an older version), or your zip file does not contain what you think it does.
