Using Windows Explorer in Vista with WinRAR (or 7zip) installed, when I right click on a group of archives, there is a menu choice to Extract each archive to separate folder in WinRAR (or Extract to "*\" in 7zip). I have a number of folders, each with hundreds of subfolders and I need to create .zips or .rars of each subfolder. (I'll be posting these archives to Usenet, so RARs are preferred). Doing them one at a time is going to drive me mad.
I'd like to see a simple right-click menu item saying Compress each folder to separate archive. Choosing this command will take each folder in a group of 2 or more selected folders and RAR (preferably) or ZIP each folder to a separate archive in the same directory (using the program defaults for creating archives). Or, if they are right-click-dragged to another folder, the option will be Compress each folder to separate archive here, creating the archives in the target directory.
I don't think recursiveness is required since it's not offered in the Extract... command this is mirroring and might make things too complex.
Doable? Soon, maybe?
