How to Unarchive Multiple .7z Files

Published on 30 May 2017 | No Comments

To uncompress .7z files, we first need to install 7z.

On OS X, assuming you run Homebrew, the command is:

brew update
brew install p7zip

On Debian, run this:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install p7zip

On RedHat systems, run this:

sudo yum install p7zip p7zip-plugins

To extract filename.7z with their full paths:

7z x filename.7z

To extract filename.7z in the current directory:

7z e filename.7z

To extract all the .7z files in the current directory:

for file in *.7z; do 7z x "$file"; done

To delete 7z files with b1 in their filename:

find . -name '*b1*' -print0 | xargs -0 rm

To list the files contained in filename.7z:

7z l filename.7z

To update the archive filename.7z with .txt files:

7z u filename.7z *.txt

To delete all .txt files in filename.7z:

7z d filename.7z *.txt

To test the integrity of filename.7z:

7z t filename.7z
