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.

WinZip integrates with email, social media, and cloud storage, making it easy to send large files directly from within the WinZip application window. WinZip's ZipSend service automatically uploads email attachments to the ZipSend online cloud, and makes them available to email recipients.

WinZip provides security capabilities for user data. It supports AES encryption, which can be used to secure and password-protect sensitive data. Additionally, WinZip automatically wipes, obfuscates, and deletes any temporary extracted files that were created in the process of decryption, preventing unauthorized access to deleted files.

WinZip provides a wide set of features that span from personal to professional environments. Personal users typically use WinZip for decompressing downloaded files over the Internet, or for zipping files that are sent over email. In professional environments, WinZip may be used for encrypting important files, creating compressed documents, and archiving data. Regardless of the environment, Corel WinZip is a great solution for any file compression needs.
