File Compression Extension

 Content Previous Next

This extension allows to compress and uncompress files in Source before these files are transferred to Target. The extension uses ZIP compression algorithm. This reduces network traffic and decreases the amount of time required for file transfer.

Files in Target

After compressed files have been transferred to Target, they can be uncompressed with any ZIP-compatible software, such as WinZip, PKWare pkzip, etc. (not provided). This also may be done automatically by AnyFileBackup if it is installed on a Target computer.

Password protection

If the File Compression extension is used in conjunction with the File Encryption extension, it can set password to ZIP-compressed files. This makes transfer of these files both safer and quicker.
