it does something
A zip disc is a storage device similar to a floppy. The media is pricey, though, so i would suggest you use CD-R/W instead of zip.
A zip disk is a disk which can be read by a Zip drive.
Although Windows 2000 has no built-in utility to extract .zip files, several programs that can extract them do run on Windows 2000.These include WinZip, WinRAR, 7-Zip, and TUGzip.
perhaps if you can zip it.
A zip disk is a removable storage device that is designed to fit in a zip drive. Zip disks were first produced in 1995. Zip disks cannot be read by any other drive, and a zip drive cannot read any other disks.
Simple. You install 7-Zip.
A zip drive is a storage device similar to a floppy disc but of a larger capacity, 100, 250 or 750 megabytes.
Well if you want to install a non zip file on the windows vista you need to 1. Install the file. 2. See it on your downloads documents and click on th zip folder on the top of the document then everything will change into zip files!!!
Windows Movie Maker 2.1 is bundled with Windows XP. But you can also copy the program files and send them to a zip folder. This then creates a zip installer file that you can upload to any file sharing site online like Mediafire. And then download the Movie Maker 2.1 zip file onto your computer or any other computer. And this will install Windows Movie Maker 2.1 for Windows XP on both Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Mediafire and other file sharing sites allow you to store your files online. And you are given a web link that you can share with friends or post to your blog or website. So that anyone who has the web link can download the Movie Maker 2.1 zip file onto their Windows 7 or Windows Vista computer. And you can download the Movie Maker 2.1 zip file onto your Windows 7 or Windows Vista computer,even if you do not have your Windows XP computer with you. There are several downloads for Windows Movie Maker 2.1 for Windows XP on Mediafire and other file sharing sites. And as they are zip files, you just unzip the file to Programs on C drive and run the program. And Windows Movie Maker 2.1 will work on Windows 7 and Windows Vista. As long as you have Windows Movie Maker 2.6 installed.
7-Zip doesn't know folder path of drop target. Only Windows Explorer knows exact drop target. And Windows Explorer needs files (drag source) as decompressed files on disk. So 7-Zip extracts files from archive to temp folder and then 7-Zip notifies Windows Explorer about paths of these temp files. Then Windows Explorer copies these files to drop target folder. To avoid temp file usage, you can use Extract command of 7-Zip or drag-and-drop from 7-Zip to 7-Zip.
Right click > Extract
I am not sure you can, but you can make the files read only...
Start menu>All Programs>Accesssories Then right click on "Command Prompt" and select "Run as Administrator" In the command window type assoc .zip=CompressedFolder That will restore .zip files to their original Windows Explorer associations.
A "zipped folder" in Windows is a compressed ZIP archive.
No, it isn't. Actually is a storage device, but if you want to categorize it into Input- or Output device, it would be an input device because you put the disc INTO the drive.
As strange as it may seem, you write to a zip disk using a zip drive...Zip drives are pretty much out of favor now, everyone is using DVD's, flash drives and external hard drives.But if you need to read an old zip disk, see if you can find an old I-Omega zip drive. I would offer to sell you mine but it's long gone.
No. Zip drives cannot read floppy disks, and cannot be used on a traditional floppy controller.
The same story when you delete it from the Windows Explorer.
Capacity, mostly. Traditional floppies have a maximum capacity of 2.88 MB. Zip disks had a starting capacity of 100 MB, and have a current max of 750 MB. Zip drives can still read traditional floppies, but Zip disks have narrower tracks and spin faster, so a standard floppy drive cannot read them.Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/What_is_the_difference_between_a_Zip_disk_and_a_Floppy_disk#ixzz1MBQB1R4s
you need a Windows PC with Windows XP or you need to install WinZip or similar program, then you just double click on the folder
It refers to a type of compressed file, that has to be "unzipped" before it can be read.
