Zip & Unzip
Zip and manage content
Compressing large files and folders makes them easier to transfer and saves storage space. Choose files from your PC using simple, drag-and-drop functionality or get files you've stored on Box, SkyDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, CloudMe and SugarSync to zip instantly. Zip files are perfect for sharing because they let you organize multiple files into one convenient package.
Extract content from the industry's widest selection of compressed file types, including Zip, Zipx, RAR, 7Zip, BZ2, LHA/LZH and many more. When extracting encrypted files, WinZip auto-wipes all temporarily extracted copies to prevent misuse.
Connect to more cloud services
WinZip connects directly to Box, SkyDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, CloudMe and now SugarSync, so you can organize all your cloud files at once. Use WinZip to zip and save large files to the cloud or retrieve files or links to share. Secure your files and save precious online storage space by zipping and encrypting them first.
One-stop cloud file sharing
Imagine being able to see all your cloud files—even if they are saved on various cloud services—in a single view. Now you can, with WinZip 18. Instead of wasting time moving back and forth between various services to see where your files are and how much space you have, enjoy fast, easy cloud file sharing without leaving WinZip.
Zip and share to social media
Use ZipShare to share any type of file to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Keep everyone in the loop by posting content to all three social networks at once. Simply select the files you want to share, compose your message, and pick the social networks where you want your files to go.
Email large files with just a click
WinZip 18 lets you email large files or folders using any of your cloud services. Your files are automatically uploaded to your default cloud service and a link to them is placed in your outgoing email. Send up to 50MB free if you're using the ZipSend cloud or move up to ZipSend Pro to send up to 2GB
Convert files to PDF
Share content the right way by converting to PDF. WinZip makes it easy to convert Microsoft Office files to PDF as you zip, making them ready to share with anyone. For extra protection, create a read-only PDF.
Create share-ready images
Convert high-resolution images to more convenient sharing sizes instantly when adding them to your Zip. This lets you share entire albums with ease while keeping full-quality originals on file.
Preview files and folders
WinZip's convenient previewing functionality lets you browse the contents of a Zip file before deciding if you need to unzip it. The advanced 'Unzip and Try' feature lets you temporarily review related components within a Zip file (such as an HTML page and its associated graphics) without having to extract the Zip file first.
Safeguard your private information
Protect your files from unauthorized access by applying banking-level security with FIPS-197 certified 128 or 256-bit AES encryption. For extra security, set your own password policy by defining complexity requirements that WinZip will enforce for you.
Deter unauthorized copying, add traceability and protect your intellectual property by adding custom watermarks to images and PDFs. You control the transparency of your watermark, and choose how and where it appears. Add a date/time stamp to your watermark for even more security.
Back up and protect files with WinZip Pro
Back up to the cloud
Auto-backup to any connected cloud account, desktop folder or between cloud accounts.
Back up your files, automatically
Back up your documents, email, desktop, favorites, pictures, libraries and more with just a click by setting up custom jobs to automatically zip and archive your important files. Simplify the process and free yourself from repetitive zipping and archiving tasks by using predefined jobs.
Get more from portable media
Prevent data loss by zipping and backing up your important data and burning it directly to Blu-ray Disc, CD or DVD. You choose if you want to back up your whole computer or just specific files. If necessary, WinZip Pro will automatically split your backups over multiple disks.
