Unzip File Using Balareva UiPath Activities

If you recently downloaded multiple attachments from an email or your cloud storage platform, such as Google Drive, and the downloaded file is in a single zip archive file, or if you’re attempting to automate the process of unzipping a zipped file.

You might be wondering how I can unzip these files and use UiPath RPA to access individual downloads as needed.

In this article, I’ll walk you through the process of unzipping a.ZIP file using the Balareva UiPath activity.

To #Unzip a file using Balareva #UiPath activities, you can follow these steps:

1. Open UiPath Studio and create a new project with windows-legacy compatibility.

2. Go to the “Manage Packages” option from the “Project” tab on the top menu bar.

3. In the “Manage Packages” window, search for “Balareva Unzip” in the search box.

4. Click on the “Install” button to install the “Balareva Unzip” activity package.

5. Once the package is installed, you can use the “Balareva Unzip” activity in your workflows.

6. To use the activity in your workflow, drag and drop the “Balareva Unzip” activity from the “Activities” panel onto the workflow.

7. Configure the activity by providing the input parameters, such as the path to the ZIP file you want to extract, and the path to the folder where you want to extract the files.

8. Run the workflow to extract the files.


Note: Once you have installed the “Balareva Unzip” package, you can use the activity in all your workflows without having to install the package again. However, if you need to use the activity in another project, you will need to install the package in that project as well.
