Hello All,

In order to zip/unzip folder from command prompt one need to execute tar command. Below mentioned is syntax and example for the same:

Syntax:
To Tar:
tar cvzf tarfilename foldername

Untar:
tar xvzf tarfilename

Example:
tar cvzf abc.tar.gz abc
- This will zip [tar] the abc folder with the name abc.tar.gz

tar xvzf filename.tar.gz
- This will unzip [untar] the file as abc folder.

Thats it!

Thanks,
