Eliminate relative folder structure when unzipping a file

A zip file containing both files and folders can be extracted so all the files appear on one level with no subfolders.

Robo-FTP version 3.8

The trick with version 3.8 is to unzip the existing file, re-zip with the /subdirs option, then unzip a second time. Like this:

MAKEDIR "zip_temp"

UNZIP "" "zip_temp" "*" /subdirs

ZIP "" "zip_temp\*" /create /subdirs

MAKEDIR "zip_flat"

UNZIP "" "zip_flat" "*"

After running the above sequence of commands the folder named "zip_flat" will contain all the files from with no subfolders.

Robo-FTP version 3.9 and Later

Robo-FTP 3.9 added a new /flat option to the UNZIP command. See the Help file for details.
