Winzip Free Download -How Does This Software Help You?
When we get zipped files, we must have the correct software to open it. There is no way around it. A lot of the files you get in online business will be what we call, zipped. The files have been compacted to make them smaller and easier to transfer from one user to the next. Winzip version 16 came out in October of 2011.
The winzip free download version is located at a place I personally trust and have been using for many years now, Cnet. The download is here. You can use the free version they have, albeit it has a nag screen, but what the heck. Winzip compresses files about 25%, this makes file sharing a lot more easy for you and the person you send a file to.
Most products that are sold on clickbank and regular web sales have zipped files as part of their package. You will need to have a copy handy to open what you paid for. Folks that are new will have to be able to use this software and much more. This version of winzip has a lot more functions than in past years, it has the ability to shred the temp files with DOD level shredding technology.
This winzip free download version will work for Windows 7, XP, and Vista. File size of the download is about 52 megabytes.
Direct from the Winzip folks themselves:
“WinZip is the world leader in file compression, file encryption, file sharing, and data backup. Now with a high-performance 64-bit zip engine that takes full advantage of your computer’s processing power, WinZip 16.0 instantly compresses your data to create Zip files, LHA files, and our smallest file type, Zipx. Need to extract content from other file formats like RAR, 7Z, BZ2, LHA, CAB, IMG, or ISO? Not only can WinZip extract the industry’s widest selection of compressed file types, but WinZip 16.0 introduces extended preview features that support these additional formats.”

7Zip -An Alternative To Winzip Free Download
There is another unzipping program that works across many operating systems, and that is 7zip.This older style software looks like it was designed in the days of Windows 95, but it still works and is kept updated to work with most any OS. I have a copy myself and use it when I need to unzip my files.
We also need to unpack various other types of files that sometimes are included in internet marketing products. If you have ever been told that you need to clone your wordpress based website and move a copy, you will be dealing with TAR and GZ type files. This is an absolute must-have for your online business toolbox.
“The free 7-Zip unpacks a host of archive formats, including ZIP, TAR, GZ, and its own 7z format. Unlike WinZip, though, it can create TAR and GZ archives, which are commonly used on Unix and Linux systems.”
