Reliable file compression and archiving utility software,
This review is from: WinZip 15 Standard Single User (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Winzip is an archiving tool used to reduce the size of files by compressing them so that the smaller files can be quickly and easily sent via email or downloaded from a website. Once downloaded or received by the recipient they are then 'unzipped' to extract the contents - which could be text, documents, photographs, image files.
WinZip 15 works with Zip, Zipx, RAR, CAB, ISO (ie disc image) and other files making it one of the most versatile world-wide and it is the industry standard zipping tool. It's also one of those utilities you may think you don't need - until you download or receive a 'zipped' file and suddenly realise you're unable to open it or use it.
If you currently use 'zip' files or regularly send large files such as photographs or lengthy documents you wish to share with others, then it's an essential tool. Winzip 15 also offers a range of other useful features, including both a full backup and incremental data backup, automatic or manual, into a zipped file which can be restored in the event of a disc drive or other hardware failure making it a worthy investment.
