Advantages: Free, Quick to Download
Disadvantages: None Worth Mentioning
Winzip is a piece of software that every user should haven installed because it is almost impossible to use a computer properly, without it. It is a compression tool, which enables files such as word-processed documents to be compressed to a much smaller size. It is also a decompression tool and many files downloaded on the Internet are distributed in ZIP file format.
The software is also extremely useful as a backup tool when hard disc space is low, multiple files can be compressed into one and stored, the compressed files can then be viewed easily when they are required.
The software is available to download free and it takes less than five minutes on a standard connection. So this is a piece of software well worth getting, it will make your file swapping a lot easier.
