Hi All,
I have a module where I can take in zip files and then I unzip them to a specific directory. However, sometimes the zip files themselves have double-nested folders. e.g. a zip file
"".. will contain a folder "book1" and then book1.txt. I want to keep the first level such that will create
but not

However there aren't always 2 levels... so I want to examine the zip file, check to count how many levels there are, and either extract, or else go *into* the zip file and then extract the subfolder.

Any ideas ? Many thanks

			write-output "$("Setting Location to Directory : ")$($i.DirectoryName)"
            set-location $i.Directoryname
			Write-Output "$("Expanding ")$($$(" to ")$($workdir)$("\")$($ComicsDir)$("\")$($i.basename)"
			$extractor = New-Object sevenzip.SevenZipExtractor($i.fullname)                                                                                                                                                                                                    
			Remove-Item $
			#$testempty = dir 
			#if (!$testempty)
			#	cd ..
			#	Remove-Item $i.directoryname
			#	$testempty = $null

May be easier to extract the zipped data to a temporary location and then examine

Interesting idea.. yes that could take me towards the answer.

Now same question would apply... when I expand them.. how can I do a run across to say... "if there is one subdirectory in the temp folder then move it to the final folder... if there are 2 or more lower subdirectories, then move to the bottom one and move *that* to the final folder"?
