Extract Archive To Folder: Maintain folder structures?

Hello,

Is there a way to maintain the folder hierarchy when using the OneDrive for Business- Extract Archive to Folder action? When its used, it flattens all folder hierarchy into a single folder and prepends nested files with `subfolderName_`. This is problematic because naming conventions are critical in the application I'm working on.

Example

Initial .zip folder structure: 
folder.zip |---subfolder1 |---file1.txt |---file2.txt |---subfolder2 |---file3.txt |---file4.txt After Extract Archive to Folder action runs:
folder.zip |---subfolder1_file1.txt |---subfolder1_file2.txt |---subfolder2_file3.txt |---subfolder2_file4.txt

I need the folder structure to remain in place. 

Thank you

Hi @ericonline 

 

Looks like that might be the default behavior

 

Your best bet would be to extract and let the structure create itself (flat)

 

then loop through all files, split name by underscore, and then create folder with the first part of the array of split and then accordingly move the file into that folder

So a long route to achieve your result
