I actually would've just posted this as a comment under @Wikunia's brilliant colab answer, here, but I'm new (sorry!!):
Basically, that works, and it works perfectly, but I'd like to genericise it to run on all zip files in a folder. So, basically the equivalent of a
* in Windows.
Here's @Wikunia's answer in full:
You can connect to your gdrive using:
from google.colab import drive drive.mount('/content/drive')
!unzip -uq "drive/My Drive/PATH_TO_ZIP" -d "drive/My Drive/PATH_TO_OUTPUT"
uqis only used to update and be quite (quite because massive output is sometimes causing a crash in the Google Colab Notebook.
I've tried a few things that I thought might work as wildcards (
_'s for two ...), but this is literally the first time I've used Python, I tried to google, but it's entirely not clear how to google for this.
Totally understand if this is a no can do, or if I've somehow not done things properly. I tried to tag colab and python, but no can do. Please feel free to correct my style or something. If you possibly can, please be kind.
