In the previous blog post we have seen how to extract a ZIP file.
But what about, how you can create a zip file by using PowerShell.
It's simple again, by using the Compress-Archive cmdlet. The syntax of Compress-Archive cmdlet is simple, provide the -Path of the folder which you want to compress, then provide the -DestinationPath of your .zip file and then set a -CompressionLevel, and after that hit enter.
Compress-Archive -CompressionLevel Optimal -Path C:\temp\Data\
In the the above command, I have set the -compressionLevel to Optimal , and then provided the -path of my folder which I wan to zip and then the destination path of new zip file which in aman.zip. And hit enter, in the below screenshot you can see that it has started creating a zip file.
In the below folder you can see, that our zip file is successfully created. Yayyy!!!!!
Thanks for the reading blog post.
