ZIP files are simply collections of one or more files that have been digitally compressed to reduce their file size. By compressing the size of those files and then bundling them together into one single file called a ZIP file you make it easier to upload and download your files. A compressed file will download and upload much faster thereby saving you time. There have been many formats for compressing files over the years but the most common format is ZIP.The ZIP Wizard is the program of choice to create these ZIP files.
