Hey guys, this is probably a dumb question, but what can I say, sleep deprivation catches up with ya... Hope someone has an efficient solution for this: I have about 100 gigs of data that are arranged in zipped folders on CDs. I need to take all the text files that are zipped in those folders (about 3 folders on each CD) and move them to a single zipped folder on the external hard drive. Basically, the files are intraday trade data for a couple of years that I wanna run some programs on and I would like to have them all in a single zipped directory. I have installed ZipMagic so I can access the zipped files directly within my Visual Basic routine. Here's the question I've been struggling with. How do I move files that are in the zipped directories on CDs to a different zipped directorly on the hard drive WITHOUT having to unzip them? It seems like this is so basic it should be very easy to do but I can't seem to find a way around it. Whatever I come up with is extremely slow b/c the files first get unzipped from the CD, then zipped again and moved to the final zipped folder... Any help or advice would be immensely appreciated. Thanks a bunch in advance. Vladimir.
