Hi Greg.

Yes, it is possible with windows, but the compression rates, ease of use and ability to create different archives isn't that good, where as 7zip is fantastic for such things.


I hope you find it useful.

beware the grue!

Cool thanks Dark I have it. I wasn't sure of what to do I did it with windows. So I know what to do for next time. ----- Original Message ----- From: "dark" <d...@xgam.org>

Hi greg.

I'd recommend getting 7zip from http://www.7zip.com/

this is a free zipping tool, and does an absolutely fantastic job as well as being really easy to use.

When you've installed it, just hit the application key (or any right click type thing), on the folder, and find the 7zip option. In there will be a menue that lets you do various things, but the one you use most is the "add to archive" item at the top.

Hit this and you'll be in a box where you can choose various things like compression method, or archive type such as zip or 7z as well as name the file (by default it'll be the name of the folder but you can change this if you want), if you don't want to change anything (which you probably won't), just hit enter and wait a bit and vuala!

It's extremely simple to use and it's compression levels are great. You can also use the same process to compress multiple files and zip them up by selecting them as you would to copy and paste, and it also unzips more efficiently than windows does and will tell you if there are any errors.

it can unzip Ra, iso, zip and several other formats, and can zip up in zip, ta, or 7z format.

hth.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
