a batch Zip program
« on: February 01, 2007, 07:35:51 PM »
I have always thought it would be nice to be able to select multipul folders and insted of just zipping them all into one zip file having the option to zip each folder into its own zip file.

For example

C:\my pictures\ would have 4 folders named wedding day, Hawii Vacation, Flordia Vacation, and Baby Pictures

I would like each of these folders and there subdirectories in seprate zip files not have to make each one seprately. Keep in mind I would probably have many more catagories such as 100 catagories however i shortened it for the sake of not having to write out all 100 catagories.

You can do this with my Drag+Drop Robot:

just be prepared for a little bit of a learning curve.

also you can use WinRAR, which came out tops in DC's  Best Archive Tool review..

just select all the folders that you want to archive, and click 'Add to Archive'. In the ensuing dialog, go to 'Files' and check 'Put each file to separate archive'. that's all..

Yay! I just downloaded the latest version of WinZip trying to get this feature and found out from this site it was in my old version of WinRar all this time!

What a timesaver!
