Advantages: makes email faster when transferring files and helps to save on limited storage space
Disadvantages: none really, not that I can think of anyway !!!!!!
I absolutley love this excellent utility. I have always considered it to be a necesary tool for every user no matter what their level of competance.
Most people discover winzip when doenloading a file of the internet or as an attachment in their emails, they get this thing they are after only to discover it is a zipped or an archived file.
This is easily resolved as you can download this handy utility from many different sources.
For the slightly more advanced users there is an excellent add on which creates a 'self extracting' zip file. This means that you can send zipped files to someone who doesn't have winzip and they can still unzip the file.
Zipped files are most usefull for transferring or storing files where space is on the skimpy side(hmmm titchy hard drives).
Users of the new Microsoft Windows Millenium Edition will probably be aware of the all new built in zip/archive software now included into the operating system (as it should have always been) which happens to be 100% compliant with winzip. it is an excellent addition to windows but I personally feel that winzip is the true utility to use.
I wonder what you people think ????
