2. Software Overview
WinZip is a popular file compression utility for Windows. It allows users to compress and decompress file archives, create data backups, securely encrypt data save files to cloud storage, and manage PDF files. By compressing files, users can conserve storage space and speed up file transfers over the Internet.
WinZip supports a variety of archive formats, including .ZIP, .ZIPX, .RAR, .7Z, .TAR, .GZIP, and .XZ. The utility can compress and extract data to and from single, split, and multi-volume archives. In regards to creating split archives, users can split numerous files into multiple archives of uniform size. These files can be DVD or CD-ROM disk images, documents, videos, images, and other media files. The resulting split archives can then be merged back into the original, complete archive using WinZip.
