Windows XP >> Winzip 10.0 Question

I know how to zip up a group of individual files.

Is there an easy way to zip a set of files in a group of nested folders? In
other words, suppose we have top folder A which holds Subfolders B and C. B
and C each contain a set of files or other folders, etc..

Is there an easy way to have Winzip to roll up all the files continued in
all the nested folders, without having to go into each subfolder and
individually add all the files?

Windows XP >> Winzip 10.0 Question Adding folders (and the subfolders or files in them) into Winzip is no
different from adding files.
In Windows Explorer, in the left pane navigate to highlight the top folder
(the one you call A), so all its subfolders and files show in the right
pane. In the right pane select all the folders and files (Highlight the top
one, hold shift key highlight the bottom one). With them all selected right
click, click on the Winzip icon in the context menu to bring up the Winzip
side menu, click whichever of the add to zip options you want.
Or, Open Winzip, and drag the selection into the Winzip Window.

In the Winzip window you will just see a list of all the files in the
folders and subfolders, not the folders themselves, but Winzip also stores
the path for each file so that if you later extract the files from the zip,
the folder structure will be recreated. You can see the path column in the
Winzip window (if it is not already there right click on the column headers
check the columns you want to show)..

Windows XP >> Winzip 10.0 Question Is it Winzip 10.0 Pro? If so, you should be able to create a job that will
do what you are wanting to do. To get the job functionality, you have to
have the Pro version. I haven't used the basic version in quite a while, so
not sure how it would work there.

Yes. Right-Click on the parent folder, select SEND TO, Select
Compressed Zip folder.

Done.

The zip file will be placed in the parent folder.

Hope this helps.

Why ask here? Winzip has NOTHING to do with the OS.

Sorry for replying to the wrong poster, but the original message
didn't make it to me. To the original poster, look for a option to
"Save full path info" under the WinZip menu.

Windows XP >> Winzip 10.0 Question That's using the "compressed folders" feature in Windows not the WinZip
product.
