How can I extract a *.7z file on Ubuntu while keeping the directory structure intact?

Following this guide, I tried

7za e My.7z file.

But it does not keep the files in the SAME directory structure whith all the files at the parent directory.

Thank you.

Please include an example showing what you would like to get and what is actually happening. Also, you have probably created the archive badly, make sure you compress the parent folder and not its contents, ie run 7za -a foo.7z /foo and NOT 7za foo.7z -a /foo/*. – terdon Dec 19 '12 at 20:48

Maybe this can help you:

7z x Myfile.7z
