I'm trying to compress files in a directory. Let's assume the directory is "test".

when I execute the following command and unzip the file, I get "test" folder and files inside the test folder.

zip aa.zip test/*

How do I make it so that I get only files without "test" folder when I unzip the compress file?

This command will work:

cd test; zip ../aa.zip *

If you need to do this for multiple directories, do this command for each one. zip will append the new files to the aa.zip archive.
