This is how to fix a directories hierarchy from an old Windows archive. What I discovered is that some 3d party content, in particular sold here, were packed with one of old buggy zip utilites under Windows. Unpacking these under MacOS or Linux results in a flat list of files with backslash in their names, e.g. "People\Genesis 8 Female\Clothing\Foxy..." instead of creation of the directories People, People/Genesis 8 Female etc.
The following link https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/365738/380799
contains a python code which you save in a file, say, fixwindirs, for instance, in your home directory ~/
Then open a terminal window (Applications/Utilities/Console.app in MacOS), change its mode to executable:
chmod +x ~/fixwindirs
Then you change to the folder created when you unzipped the content
and execute this program:
This should now create a proper directories structure with all the files renamed and moved to the right places
