ZIP Files & Folders

Top  Previous  Next


Three menu items below Tools > Compress allow you to handle ZIP archives beyond the convenient ZIP integration of  the Windows XP Explorer. In principle they correspond to the Windows Explorer shortcuts of the well known WinZIP software.


1. ZIP Files


Select a number of files or images in the current folder, and automatically compress them to an archive with the same name as the current folder. The archive is stored in the current folder. If you then move to another folder or subfolder, you can easily add images to the previously created ZIP archive.


2. ZIP Folder


Select a folder in the Explorer tree, or a directory item in Details View. An archive with the same name as the selected folder is automatically created in the parent folder, containing all files from all subdirectories of the selected folder. An extraction of this archive automatically restores all files and recreates the corresponding subfolders.


Example: you have selected a folder with the path D:\Images\2003\Paris. An Archive with the name D:\Images\2003\Paris.ZIP is created.


3. Extract ZIP Archive


An archive created with the Zip Folder utility is automatically restored with the exact directory structure below the current location.


Example: you have selected an archive with the name E:\Holidays\Paris.ZIP. A directory with the name E:\Holidays\Paris is created, and all files from the original directories are restored in their corresponding subdirectories, i.e. to E:\Holidays\Paris\Day1, etc.
