Zip multiple files into individual archives via Automator
Authored by: morespace54 on Aug 06, '07 08:17:37AM

Okay, one last thing... ;)

When I zip a folder with this script, let's say /foo from the Desktop level (~/Desktop/foo),
everything is working fine, i.e. it gives me a file named foo.zip at the same level as my original /foo folder (~/Desktop/foo).
The problem is when I unzip it. I end up with nested folders, i.e. /Users/MyUserName/Desktop/foo on the ~/Desktop folder. Is there a way to not include all those (almost empty) folders in the script?

The idea would be to make the script behave just like the "Create Archive of..." in the contextual menu
