Extract 7-zip files into sharepoint

Hi is it possible to extract a 7-zip file that's been received into sharepoint via email. I have a flow working for standard .zip files but it won't work for 7-zip.

 

I have also tried adding a step to change the file extension before receipt but this seems to successfully change the file type but power automate still does not recognise it as a .zip.

 

Any help much appreciated.

I had a zip folder in my library and using the above flow I extracted contents into another library.

@moomarine ok great, I dont have 7-zip on my machine so I will not able to try this out, but I don't see any free or premium connectors which allow to unzip 7-zip type files so I think we can conclude that this cannot be done in Power Automate.

is there a way to convert it from 7-zip to .zip prior to trying to extract it?
