The Basic Information of WinZip
Did you just receive e-mail with a Zip file attached to it, or have you just download a zipper file and do not know what to do by using it? Explain to WinZip product,
what are Zip files?
Zip files (.zip or .Zipx) are single files, sometimes called "archives” that contain one or more compressed files. Zip files allow it to be simple to keep related files together and make transporting, e-mailing, downloading and storing data and software faster and more efficient. The Zip format is easily the most popular compression format used in the Windows environment, and WinZip is easily the most popular compression utility.
So why do people use Zip files?
Zip files compress data and therefore save your time, space, make downloading software, and transferring e-mail attachments faster. Typical uses for Zip files include:
• Distributing files on the web: Just one download is required to obtain all related files, and file transfer is quicker since the archived files are compressed.
• Sending several related files to an associate: When you distribute a collection of files like a single Zip file, you take advantage of the file grouping as well as compression.
• Saving disk space: For those who have large files that are important but seldom used, for example large documents, simply compress the files right into a Zip file after which unzip (or "extract") them only if needed.
Where does WinZip easily fit in?
To keep files inside a Zip file, in order to connect to the files in a Zip file, you need a compression utility such as WinZip. WinZip allows Windows users to work with archives. WinZip features a standard Windows point-and-click drag-and-drop interface for viewing, running, extracting, adding, deleting, and testing files in Zip files.
