to decompress a folder

please use the script to decompress a folder that was compressed already

import ctypes
import subprocess
import os

class disable_file_system_redirection:
    _disable = ctypes.windll.kernel32.Wow64DisableWow64FsRedirection
    _revert = ctypes.windll.kernel32.Wow64RevertWow64FsRedirection
    def __enter__(self):
        self.old_value = ctypes.c_long()
        self.success = self._disable(ctypes.byref(self.old_value))
    def __exit__(self, type, value, traceback):
        if self.success:
Path = r'C:\Users\Administrator\Documents'
if os.path.isdir(Path):
    Path = os.path.join(Path, '*')
    with disable_file_system_redirection():
        pObj = subprocess.Popen('compact /U /I {}'.format(Path), shell=True, stdout = subprocess.PIPE, stderr = subprocess.PIPE)
    rTup = pObj.communicate()
    rCod = pObj.returncode
    for i in rTup:
            print i
    print '{} is not valid folder'.format(Path)

Path = r’C:\Users\Administrator\Documents’ - you can the Path value based on your requirement
