2.  Select the Compression category.

3.  Select one of the following settings from the Save Folder Name drop-down menu:

What It Does

Relative path

Saves path information relative to the folder in the Look in field when you choose OK, for subfolders of that folder. For other files and folders, saves path information relative to the root of the drive (not including the drive letter).

Example

No path information

No path or folder information is saved for the files added

Full path

The path is saved starting from the root folder of the drive (not including the drive letter)

Relative search path

Saves path information relative to the last folder named in each path name pattern.

Example

The extraction option Restore folders determines whether saved path information is used when files are extracted.
