Product Description

Product Description

Make file sharing easy, fast and secure for everyone in your organization with new WinZip 17. The #1 choice in file compression, WinZip now offers support for multiple platforms, secure cloud and social media sharing, and new productivity-enhancing features. Give employees new ways to safely send files without putting corporate information at risk. WinZip 17 also includes PDF conversion, watermarking and image compression and resizing for more streamlined file sharing. Easy network deployment and excellent license pricing make WinZip 17 ideal for businesses of all sizes.

Unzip anything - Extract content from the industry's widest selection of compressed file types, including Zip, Zipx, RAR, 7Zip, BZ2, LHA/LZH and many more.

Zip and email in one step - With the integrated ZipSend service, your employees can send large files and folders by email without worrying about clogged inboxes and bounced messages. ZipSend automatically zips and uploads files to the cloud if they exceed the email size limit, then adds a link to the files in the message.

Secure confidential information - As always, your organization can count on WinZip to protect your company's confidential information from unauthorized access with 128- or 256-bit AES encryption. For extra security, set your own password policy by defining complexity requirements that WinZip will enforce for you.

“Shred” temporary files - For added security, WinZip auto-wipes (shreds) temporary files using the U.S. Department of Defence standard (DoD 5220.22-M) to prevent misuse.

Preview files and folders - WinZip's convenient previewing functionality lets users browse the contents of a Zip before unzipping it. The advanced Unzip and Try feature lets users temporarily review related components within a Zip (such as an HTML page and its associated graphics) without having to extract it first.

Automatic backup with WinZip Pro - Ensure corporate information is backed up with custom jobs that will automatically zip and archive important files. Schedule backups to run unattended, upload them to an off-site server or burn directly to CD/DVD or Blu-ray Disc.

1.0 out of 5 stars A once good programme ruined 24 Feb 2013
I had been using Wizip Pro 15.5 (purchased from Amazon as part of the Corel Paintshop X4 package) and was quite satisfied with the performance. A marketing email from Corel invited me to upgrade to version 17 Pro for the bargain price of £12.95. Installation was OK but the performance of my PC slowed dramatically. The culprit seems to be ZipSend which upon installation integrates itself as an add-on to Outlook (you have no choice). Outlook now took up to a minute to load (previously a few seconds) and became virtually unusable, producing various error messages when sending emails. There is no facility to remove ZipSend. I therefore decided to remove Winzip 17 pro (and revert back to 15.5) - that was a chore! There is no uninstall facility with Winzip 17 and using Add/Remove in Control Panel produced a failure of the removal half way through and I had to re-install 17 the go through the whole uninstall again. A final clean-up with RegClean Pro was required to get rid of related registry items. Very disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful for larger archives 13 Jan 2013
This was an excellent product but it has now been completely ruined. Previous versions of WinZip opened an archive very quickly however this has now changed. The entire archive is copied to the temporary folder even before you tell WinZip to do anything to the archive. Obviously if you have a 25GB archive this will slow things down!!!

It works just as well as WinZip ever works but there's nothing new about it so really a waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Corel (Winzip) is getting greedy 9 Aug 2013
By my2cents - Published on Amazon.com
If you want to spend money on every little upgrade, buy this product. I bought Winzip 16.5 less than a year ago and it auto upgraded it self to Winzip 17.5 then asked for $20.00 to use it again. I now have to uninstall 17.5 manually, go to an archive site and re-install 16.5 if I do not want to pay the upgrade fee. I have lots of software installed on my systems, Corel officially has the WORST upgrade policy of all of them. I would suggest using another decompression utility. There are many others out there that will decompress winzip files that are free or a LOT cheaper.

1.0 out of 5 stars My computer is infected with the ZipSend 29 Oct 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I use Outlook 2003 on a Windows XP system. I use Word 2003 for editing my emails. I've been using WinZip since the PKZip days. I've never had any problems with it. That is until I purchased WinZip Pro 17.0. I purchased it directly from WinZip as an upgrade. I installed it and Outlook started crashing. I started uninstalling software and rebooting trying to pin down the problem. After using WinZip for all of these years, I assumed that Winzip couldn't be the problem. Finally I uninstalled WinZip and Outlook stopped crashing.

I had quickly decided that the ZipSend was a pain. And I couldn't make it go away. I uninstalled, rebooted and reinstall the WinZip Pro thinking that I could deselect ZipSend. That's not an option. The crashing continued. When I uninstalled Winzip it stopped.

I contacted WinZip and asked for a downgrade to WinZip regular without ZipSend. They emailed me a link and a new activation code. I thought my problem was fixed. ZipSend was gone and Outlook wasn't crashing. Well, it came back. Outlook is again infected with ZipSend and again it is crashing. It is determined that I should use ZipSend for larger attachments. I prefer Media Fire. I would deselect it on the toolbar and it would come back.

In all of the years I have been using computers, I have had one virus infection. Fortunately it wasn't one of the really nasty viruses. It took only about 30 minutes to get rid of it. My ZipSend infection has been worse than the virus.

I'm going to give the WinZip folks another chance to make this right. If they can't or won't, then I will have to move on to something else.

1.0 out of 5 stars This company has TERRIBLE support! Don't buy! 27 Feb 2013
By livinglife601 - Published on Amazon.com
This company WinZip has no phone number to reach them if you are experiencing difficulties with your account ..let me repeat, there is nobody to get a hold of! and their support group in email takes a long time to respond. I'm having a terrible time with this company getting someone to respond to my emails!! It's very very frustrating. Here is what is written on their site:
"WinZip support is provided by email. This method is usually convenient for users, as well as being the most efficient means for WinZip support personnel."
This seems awful to me. What company doesn't offer phone support?... Good customer service ALWAYS provides a phone number and technical support group. Not recommended. Try this instead... PowerArchiver. It is atleast free, and there is a phone number to get a hold of someone at powerarchiver and plus it works just as well as winzip in terms of function... if not better.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy if you have multiple PCs 16 Jun 2013
By Joshua L - Published on Amazon.com
Program is great, but if you have multiple computers you want to use it on, you have to buy additional copies or buy the multi-user license from the developer's website. Too expensive in my opinion. Look for cheaper or free alternatives.
