Hello All,
I have kind of a tricky issue but I am hoping one of you will be able to help me. I have a folder with a bunch of zip files that get uncompressed automatically every 15 minutes. I need Automize to recursively check all the sub folders and files inside the zips and if it finds a particular file extension to exclude that zip file from being uncompressed and move it to a separate folder. I would be greatly appreciative of any help.

Thanks

The unzip task can only unzip all files within the archive. it does not have the capability to filter files within the archive.

You only option would be to:
1) unzip the file to a temp folder
2) run a monitor task to detect the particular extension within this temp folder tree.
3) if the monitor task finds the particular file extension, move the zip file to directory X, else unzip the file.
