4.0 out of 5 stars A great compression utility, 4 Mar 2012
This review is from: WinZip 15 Pro Single User (PC) (DVD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is one of the best compression tools out there, there are some which can get a little bit more compression, some which take less time. however there are not many which have the level of integration and support that you get from WinZip. The ability to create scheduled backups of important files to a compressed archive is a great feature; as is the ability to compress a file (or files) and send them via email.

The fact Corel is now the owner of this great tool is a mixed blessing, the support of the product is great as is the future development, however Corel do try to send emails promoting their other products once you have registered. Opting out of theses emails is fairly simple after you have received the first one, as this is fairly standard nowadays this is not so much of a problem.

Where winZip realy does com into its own is when you consider some of the addons available like courier which integrates with your email client and automatically zips any attachments reducing the size of the email, and if the file is going to be larger than a set size uses a file server to send the file through.
