The command you're trying can't possibly work.

First, the unzip -d option requires an option-argument naming the directory into which files extracted from each of the files being unzipped will be placed. Your command does not provide an option-argument for the -d option.

Second, your .zip files are not all located in the same directory. Therefore, *.zip can't locate all of the .zip files on the M: drive no matter what directory you're sitting in when you invoke that command.

And, third, we have no idea what the contents are in each of your .zip files. I'm guessing that the M: drive on your Windows systems are a separate drive from the drive(s) from which the files in those .zip files were archived. Unless the .zip files contain absolute pathnames of the source files that have been archived and you want to restore those files in their original locations, we have no information on how to figure out what directory should be used as the target for the extraction of files from any of those archives. Furthermore, since you're using the unzip -j option, you're telling unzip to ignore all directory information that is stored in each archive that is being read.

if so , is that any code to list all file with .zip file ?
currently my situation is all single file been zip even .exe and main folder, only sub folder are not turn into zip file.


Code:
path/main_folder.zip/sub_folder/text.txt.zip

the other method i'm using is, but i'm not sure how many zip file and sub folder are, because it include too many sub and main folder, inside folder might have another sub folder:
Code:
ls *.zip
ls */*.zip

You might consider the find command. It will descend a directory tree trying to find matches. if you don't want it to cross into any sub-mounted filesystems or follow symbolic links then there are flags to deal with that.

As a starter for 10, try something like:-
Code:
cd /path/to/main/folder
find . -xdev -type f -name "*.zip"

What is your OS & shell? There seems to be one post using / and one using \ The output (in CODE tags) from uname -a;ps would be very useful.

If every single file has been zipped and you are confident of the unzip process, you could even extend the find to run that on each file it finds, however you have to be sure it is what you want, so copy a small part away and test it elsewhere first. Just focus on working with a single zip file first. What command do you have for unzipping one of these? Does it remove the zip file afterwards? Is that is what you want?



Kind regards,
Robin

Thank you for help , but i'm still find how to unzip into own folder.

OS window 7 , shell kornshell

i'm using the find command , it able to list out all file, but i'm unable to make it to the unzip in the original sub folder, it extract all out at the folder i'm start.

i'm been find the unzip command with -d able to make it work , but i'm not sure how to list it.

i'm want try to make every line become like this
below are the example only
Code:
unzip -o mixed/u12/analog.zip -d mixed/u12
unzip -o digital/u12.zip -d digital

yup if possible i want to remove it , but for current state i'm need make sure everything ok only go for that step.

See if this gives you a hint at a way forward:
Code:
find . -name '*.zip' | while read -r path
do	echo unzip -o "$path" -d "${path%/*}"
done

If this prints the unzip commands that you want to run, remove the echo and run it again to actually unzip the files.
