Is it possible to decide whether to replace files or skip files that already exist when unzipping



I'm working on some scripts to handle unzipping .zip files from within TestComplete. I have a working script that unzips, but I'm just trying to see if there is a way to decide whether to "replace" or "skip".


This is my code to UnZip:


function UnzipFileToDirectory(zipFile, destinationDirectory){

if(zipFile == undefined || aqString["GetLength"](zipFile) < 1){
Log["Error"]("There was no zip file provided in the method parameters. Please provide one.");

//declare variables needed to unzip
var fso = Sys["OleObject"]("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
var objShell = Sys["OleObject"]("Shell.Application");


//Copy the files in the Zip and past them in the destination directory
var filesInZip = objShell["NameSpace"](zipFile).Items();


Currently this code works to extract Zip files, but if there is already a file that exists with the same name as a file in the .zip file, I'll get presented with this window:


Unfortunately, it doesn't look like I can simply click on the buttons as I would expect, because it seem that while that message box is present, TestComplete is still  processing the line below.


Any help would be appreciated.
