We have obtained detailed information about zip format in our previous articles. We have also learned how zip file can be created in different operating systems.

In this article of Jeevan Bima Bazaar, you will get information about winzip. With the help of WinZip, it becomes quite easy to convert different types of files, folders into zip format and then unzip them again. So let us know about WinZip in detail in this article.

What is WinZip?

WinZip is a software with the help of which you can easily compress different types of files and folders like image files, audio files, video files, text files etc. With the help of this software, compressed files are reduced in size and create a separate container. With the help of WinZip, you can also password protect such compressed files.

For Example, suppose you want to save some image files, some video files, and some text files in a single folder. So that you can use them if needed in future. So you can do this work in two ways.

The first common method could be to create a folder in your device and save all such files in that folder. Now suppose that when you have saved many images, videos and text files in this new folder, then this folder is consuming 3 GB space of your device and if someone else is using your device, then he will be able to access this folder easily.

This means that if you create a folder using the normal method, it consumes a large space on your device and any person can easily use the different types of data files kept inside such a folder.

Now another professional way to save such different types of files in your device can be to select all such files and compress them with the help of WinZip software. By doing this, your file will be converted into zip format and such file will also save 10% to 90% space on your device as compared to before.

If you want, you can also set a password while compressing files with WinZip software. By doing this a password will be required to open your files. Due to which, unauthorized person will be unable to open your zip file.
