Advantages: Compresses filesquickly and easily
Winzip is a must for every PC owner. I am not a techie but I can use winzip quickly and efficiently so theres hope for everybody!
You have a choice of wizard or classic, with the former requiring you only to drag files you want to compress or decompress into the winzip dialogue box.
If you need to email large documents then winzip compresses them into smaller files and then you'll be able to send them faster and to email account that have limited gateway sizes!
Compression rates are dependant on the software in which the file was written. Statistical packages such as SPSS can see compression of files by a factor of about 60-70%
I can not recommend this product enough. Its is the best thing since sliced bread in the computer world!
You can download an evaluation copy of the newset version from winzip.com
