    Exclamation Not all files extracted with UnZip


    Usually I use tar & gz on my remote server with SSH but this time I got a zip file that I need to extract ... first time I used the UnZip command and I noticed during the process that it's inflating some files
    inflating: file1
    extracting: file2
    inflating: file3
    inflating: file4
    extracting: file5

    Now, why it's doing that ? I only used UnZip file.zip .... How I get all files extracted ?

    Thank You in Advance

    Extracting, unshrinking, deflating, inflating, all these are different methods. They all do the same.

    All the files are being extracted.

    Inflating means the file was compressed so unzip is uncompressing the file when it extracts it.

    Extracting means the file didn't compress so unzip doesn't have to uncompress (or inflate) the file, just extract it.

    To verify just check for the presence of file1, file3, & file4 in the directory you unzipped to.

    the zip file containes more than 2500 files when I extract them using WinRar on my PC I find them all in the output but when UnZip on my remote server I get only 1998 files.... after checking I fount that only the inflated files are not there in the output folder.
    For example, if the extraction process was like this
    inflating: file1
    extracting: file2
    inflating: file3
    inflating: file4
    extracting: file5
    ..... then I only find the files 2 & 5
