I have a big zip archive and I want to extract only .mp3 files that are located in sites/default/files/ to mymp3 directory. How can I achieve it?

  • @DopeGhoti I didn't try anything if you know how can I do it please provide your answer, extract sites/default/files/*.mp3 files form zip file – Yuseferi Feb 26 '16 at 7:14
  • @bodhi.zazen you just search the google and paste it here ? :D , read the question first please, files not file ;) – Yuseferi Feb 26 '16 at 7:55

I found the solution, you can do it with

unzip yourzipfile.zip 'sites/default/files/*.mp3' -d mymp3

    You better put the filename wildcard into quotes, else you'll get problems if an mp3 already exists in the local path. – Murphy Feb 26 '16 at 12:25
