I'm having a hard to making zipfile to retain the structure. This is the code that I am currently using:
target_dir = "/tmp/Folder" zip = zipfile.ZipFile('/tmp/manual.zip', 'w', zipfile.ZIP_DEFLATED) rootlen = len(target_dir) + 1 for base, dirs, files in os.walk(target_dir): for file in files: fn = os.path.join(base, file) zip.write(fn, fn[rootlen:]) zip.close()
It will make a zip the file but after I extract it, the "Folder" dir will be gone and only the files inside the Folder will be received. How do I do this? What I want to happen is that when I extract the zip, it will show as 'Folder' and it should contain the files inside.
