7za not archiving empty directories

By | May 23, 2012

I ran into a semi-bug in Igor’s 7zip’s command line application. I used a “\*.*” as the source and the “-r” argument for an archive I wanted auto generated via a script. 7zip skipped all of my empty directories. Once I changed the “*.*” to a single “*” everything worked as it should. So single * for 7zip and *.* for everyone else. Thanks Igor!
