Is there any in built activities in UiPath to extract the files from a .rar folder. I want to extract the files and save it in a new folder with Today’s date as the folder name.
I can suggest using bash script which calls unrar:
folder_name=$(date +"%d-%m-%Y") mkdir $folder_name mv arch.rar $folder_name/ cd $folder_name unrar arch.rar
You can use it under Linux, Mac or Windows WSL2. You can call it from UI Path
Dont start with an extra program for any archive format, better use 7zip for unpack everything. Use Start Process Activity for calling the exe with parameters, not a script. Also for creating dir with timestamp, there are simple activities to keep the project readable.
