AnyZip Wizard allows you to add files and folders to an existing
archive or to an archive file during the process of creating a New
Figure: Add Files window
This window supports Drag-and-Drop
to add files or folders to the New Archive that you are creating.
In order to use the drag and drop feature, please open the Windows
Explorer and the Add Files window next to each other. Drag Files
and/or Folders to be added to the space provided in the Add Files
window as shown below:
When you drag-and-drop files or folders into the Add Files window,
AnyZip automatically stores the full path while creating the archive
file, as can be seen above. The drag-and-drop option is very useful
when you are trying to add only select files and folders to an archive.
Keep the Ctrl button pressed while highlighting individual files
and folders to be added to the archive in order to do so.
Please note that when you select a
folder to be added this way, all the files and sub-folders within
the selected folder will be added to the archive. If you want to
select only specific files in that folder, you will need to open
the folder and select the required files for adding to the archive.
You can also add files or folders
by clicking either the Add File or Add Folder buttons above.
Add File: Clicking on this
button will launch the Open window as shown below.
Figure: Open Files to be added
You can then change your source folder
using the Look In drop down and then select the file to be
added to the archive. To do so, highlight the file name and click
Open. Please note that if you select the folder, and click
Open, the folder will not be added to the Zip as this option
only allows you to add specific files. In order to add files to
the archive, select one file at a time and click open to add it
to the archive. This screen currently does not support selection
of multiple files using the Ctrl key.
Add Folder: Click on this button
to bring up the Browse for Folder window. Select the required
folder and click on OK to add this folder and all the files within
it to the archive file, as shown below:
Figure: Browse for folder window
After you are done adding Files and
Folders, click on Finish in the Add Files window to
create the new archive. Based on the selections made, the new archive
is created and displayed in the AnyZip Main Window as shown below:
Figure: Newly created archive
Some of the files in this list were
not explicitly selected during the creation of the new archive but
have been added as they are all contained in a folder selected during
the creation process. Also as the Path column shows the full
directory path of the added files is preserved by AnyZip during
the creation of the new archive.
