Yes, Yes, this was the most awaited cmdlet in the PowerShell world... Wow!! it's one of the coolest command ever exists for system admins.
Now , we can write scripts to unzip ZIP files, I mean, can write more efficient scripts to unzip files ( without using .net code).
Ok! let's be less dramatic.
If you want to unzip a zip file using PowerShell, then there is a cmdlet available for it, named Expand-Archive.
It's syntax is simple, provide the path of .Zip file, then the path of Destination where you want to extract files. that's all!
Expand-Archive -Path C:\Users\aman.dhally\Desktop\PingData.zip
-DestinationPath C:\temp\Data\ -Force -Verbose
In the above command, we are unzipping the PindData.zip to the folder C:\temp\Data. The parameters are quite self-explanatory.
In the above screenshot you can see that the above command has run successfully and it' unzip the archived.
Now you can write script to unachieve your backups. :D
