Howto unzip JPG from ZIP files using Limagito File Mover

Q: I would like to unzip JPG from a ZIP files. Every ZIP files contain JPG, XML. I would try to extract only JPG files from ZIP, but I can’t do it. All files are extracted, that obliges me to add deletion rule to delete XML files in the target folder.  Is it possible to build a rule, and ask for extract only .JPG files from ZIP ?

A: In version v2021.10.8.0 we added a new Extract Mask option in the UNZIP Destination Setup to achieve this. We immediately added an include and exclude Extract Mask.

  • Extract Include Mask ( default *.* )
  • Extract Exclude Mask ( default ‘blanco’ )

In this example we set the ‘Extract Include Mask’ to  *.jpg  so only jpg files form the zip (or other compressed file) will be extracted.
