PowerShell SharpZipLib Script

These PowerShell scripts can be used to zip and unzip files.

Zip operates on file lists such as output from the Get-ChildItem cmdlet. You can set the zip file root folder by specifying the leading folder path to remove. The Where-Object cmdlet can be used for advanced filtering. This function does not zip empty folders. See the SharpZipLib wiki for examples of zipping empty folders. Also, this function does not work with files that are locked, such as log files that are being written.

The free SharpZipLib .NET Zip assembly is used for zip functionality. You'll need to download the assembly and load it into PowerShell to run the scripts. Note that after you download or copy the assembly locally, you may have to trust the assembly. To do this, right-click the assembly and trust (unblock) it. Other related info can be found the SharpZipLib wiki.

These PowerShell scripts were tested using SharpZipLib version 0.85.5.
