Are zipped files smaller than unzipped files?
Zip files are simply compressed versions of normal files. Much of the software which you can download from the internet is in a zip format. This reduces the file size and ther…efore makes the download of software faster. Zip files also allow multiple files to be zipped together in to one zip file package, so that instead of having to download many different files, you can just download the one zip file. Then, you open the zip file, the multiple files can all be emptied out in their original format to one folder on your computer So how do you use zip files? Well, you will need an unzipping program to use them. One of the best unzipping programs is a free-to-try utility called Winzip ...Screen shot of a Winzip window. This window shows that the zip file " macaroni.zip " contains 4 separate "normal" files. It also shows how much file space was saved when the files were put into the zip file, for example File_id.diz was reduced in size from 432 bytes to 276 bytes when zipped, a saving of 36%. You can download a free trial version of the latest version of the Winzip program from the Winzip home page. You can try it out for 28 days before the free period expires. At the end of this limited time trial you need only pay one small fee to be able to continue using the program to unzip or to zip files as often, and for as long as you like. Once you have downloaded the free-to-try Winzip software, the easiest way to use it for most programs is to set it to Winzip "wizard" mode. Then, when you double click on any .zip file held on your computer, the Winzip software will automatically unzip the .zip file and place the unzipped file(s) into one separate folder. WinMount, WinRAR also support open zip file.
The ZIP file type is primarily associated with 'Compressed Archive File'. A .ZIP file is a compressed archive. It can contain only one file or many files in multiple directo…ries. ZIP utilities allow you to extract single files or a complete directory structure. The ZIP file format is a common archive and compression standard. This module provides tools to create, read, write, append, and list a ZIP file. Any advanced use of this module will require an understanding of the format, as defined in PKZIP Application Note. here you can find more information on this subject http://how-to-zip-a-file.com/#about
The mp3 extension of an mp3 file denotes that it is created using a different form of compression. If an audio file were not to have any compression whatsoeve…r, the file size would be enormous. In a CD, compression is used to remove all of the unwanted and excess data, and the rest is high quality audio. In an mp3 audio file, the quality is compressed even further. This means that instead of being potentially 10's of MB large, it is only 1 or 2 MB. However, depending on how often it has been compressed, the sound quality may suffer for it, and you might experience glitches or artifacts in the sound playback.
Zip and WinZip are utilities that compress a file by removing extraneous characters that can later be replaced to reocver the file exactly. Sipping is compressing; unzipping i…s decompressing.
First you have to download or install a archive/compression program. Some Operating systems come provided with such programs. I personally recommend 7zip. Anyways open up the …archiving program and start a new archive. It will likely prompt you for the type of archive you'd like to make. Choose zip or whatever other format you wish. Add files to your archive and save/exit.
Because - during the conversion from analogue to digital, the computer or recording device 'strips out' frequencies that are outside the human auditory range. We still here th…e tune, but are unaware that there has been some sounds removed. The digital tune still runs for the same length of time as the analogue version.

Compressing is when the file type is changed to make it smaller usually by compressing it into a zip file. Proper explanation: "Compression is the reduction in size of dat…a in order to save space or transmission time. For data transmission, compression can be performed on just the data content or on the entire transmission unit (including header data) depending on a number of factors. Content compression can be as simple as removing all extra space characters, inserting a single repeat character to indicate a string of repeated characters, and substituting smaller bit strings for frequently occurring characters. This kind of compression can reduce a text file to 50% of its original size" Zipping a file is a way of compressing one, but you can compress in other ways such as .rar
If you use an utility such as 'Winzip', then once the file(s) are unzipped it will show you the the folder they are in. And with most zip files programs you have to indicate …a destination folder before you can unzip anyway. I find 'Winzip' is It great and you can dowload it for free to evaluate it. It has a wizard feature menu which is very simple to use.
The amount that a file can be compressed by into a zip file dependson the file's type.

I dont think so if you want to keep files from others to see, I would use that. There are encryption programs that does exist (another user might point a name). I personally u…se WinRAR to make .rar with passwords. They can be hacked but it's a bit hard. If you're hiding really important documents from people that you know have hacking possibilities, you might want to take a look at encryption or call a specialist for a custom encrypting. Kindly, - N
Some do some dont dependong on content lol
A zip file is usually in the smallest format possible for a condensed file. If you need for your file to be smaller it might be necessary to try making a zip file from a diff…erent vendor who may do something behind the scenes to make the file smaller.
Depends on the file type, some, especially downloaded files and executables (.EXE and .COM) files are already compressed, so therefore won't be smaller when you zip them. You …can combine zip files into a single zip file, but it doesn't make the file size a smaller total.
You don't need to buy a converter to convert a zip to an mp3 file. Groups of MP3 files often come in a ZIP file for easier download. The ZIP file contains files that have been… compressed to reduce the size of the files. It is a folder that downloads to your computer, which you can then unzip and use the files inside. MP3 files are audio files that often take up a lot of space. Downloading a ZIP file filled with MP3s is a fast way of receiving all the data on your computer.
