Anyzip is a Windows-based application which can be used to create and view archive files and extract files from them. It has a user-friendly interface and the functions in the system can be operated either using the Anyzip keyboard shortcuts or its menu options.
Instructions for installing Anyzip on your computer can be found in the Installation Instructions section of this Help Documentation.
To get an overview of the main Anyzip interface, you can navigate to the Anyzip Main Interface section of this documentation.
Some of the regularly used features of Anyzip are explained in the Anyzip Quick Tutorial section of the documentation. Anyzip also has a Wizard option which allows you to use the common features of Anyzip through a series of friendly steps.
In addition to these features Anyzip can also be integrated with the Windows Explorer as explained in the Explorer Integration Options of this documentation.

Yes! Anyzip supports the creation of archive files in order to ensure that the resultant files can be stored on more than one disk, if the overall size of the archive is larger than the capacity of the disk. In order to use this facility, create an archive file on a disk (such as a floppy disk) and add files to it, after selecting the Split to Volumes option while creating a new archive. When you do so, Anyzip will prompt you to enter a new disk when the one in the drive is full.

Yes! As long as the archive file created using another utility has a standard compression format like those described here, the files in it can be extracted using Anyzip. Similarly, as the files created using Anyzip follow universally accepted formats these can be extracted using any other compression tool.

You cannot use the Anyzip command under MS-DOS the same way as the ZIP and UNZIP commands could be used in the past. However, you can type ANYZIP.EXE in the COMMAND window. Doing so will launch Anyzip in Windows.

Anyzip can be configured as the default application for ZIP and other types of archive files. This can be done through the Tools Menu of the application or on the first launch of the application. For details on this, please refer to Anyzip Archive Association Options.

Yes! Anyzip supports a variety of archive file formats. What is more, you can set Anyzip as the default application for all these formats, through the Archive Association Options in Anyzip. This menu also shows you the archive formats that are supported by Anyzip.

CRC refers to Cyclic Redundancy Checksum. When you create an archive, Anyzip derives the CRC for each file within the archive based on the contents of the files. When you attempt to extract a file from this archive. Anyzip again derives the CRC for the extracted file using the same logic. The extraction will only be possible if the CRC of the file matches the original CRC.
