Working with Virto SharePoint Bulk File Unzip for SharePoint 2010

SharePoint Bulk File Unzip for SharePoint 2010 supports unpacking bulk files in SharePoint. And this is its main advantage comparing to 2007 version.

When you have installed Virto SharePoint Bulk File Unzip and activated it, you can fully use its features on a SharePoint site.

Login to the SharePoint site and go to the document library where archives are uploaded.

Note: unpack options is available only for users with the rights to create files.

Use “Unpack archive” from the context menu opposite the required archive.

Unpack options will be displayed in popup window. Check the boxes depending on settings you want to apply:

  • Overwrite existing files (this option allows to overwrite existing files with extracted ones);

  • Delete archive file after successful extraction (the archive will be deleted after unpacking, this helps to save more space on the disk);

  • Keep original files Created/Modified time (when files are extracted, the create time is the time of unpack, but you can use this checkbox and keep created/modified time of original files);

  • Enter password if it is required (if password is set for unpacking for the document library/site, enter this password to unpack). If password is not required, just leave this field empty.

Click “Extract” to complete the action. If the unpacking is successful, you will see the confirming message. Click “Back to Document Library” to return to the site.
