Unrar extracts all to same folder


I am using unrar command to extract the contents of a rar file to a folder, however 'unrar e myFile.rar' is trying to extract all of the files to the same directory, ignoring the directory system inside the rar.
Am I doing something wrong?

How can I maintain the file system as it is in the rar?

Sorry for rushing into asking:
Answer is:

unrar x myFile.rar
