Advantages: Great handy tool.
Winzip really solves a lot of problems which caused by huge files. At least it helped me to zipped all huge files into several floppy disks which are only 1.44 Mega bytes per disk. There are several options available for you to choose for zipping the files - like zip the huge files into several disk, zip the whole directory of files, zip the subdirectories and so forth. Furthermore, the appearance of Winzip is very nice and it is very user-friendly, meaning that you don't have to be a computer expert to use it.
Additionally it can be downloaded from lots of free download sites such as download.com. Honestly it is useful and handy to all of us.
However sometimes, I am not sure what the reason is (perhaps caused by the really huge files and tons of files) the zip or unzip speed is very slow. And sometimes it costs a lot of RAM memory and CPU usage. I think this cannot be avoid but I hope there will be a way to improve it like make it a background compression and so forth.
