Zip files are an excellent way to group a bunch of files together in order to send them off into cyberspace.

But sometimes, in the processes of zipping, unzipping, editing, rezipping, unzipping, renaming, and rerezipping, you can end up zipping more than Michael Jackson in his Thriller jacket!

FileStream TurboZIP Express goes zipping into the future by giving you unprecedented access, control, and speed over your zipped files.

FileStream TurboZIP Express compresses files up to 50% more than conventional ZIP and up to 10% smaller than ARJ and RAR. FileStream TurboZIP Express also lets you edit, copy, print without re-opening or re-zipping. FileStream TurboZIP Express also lets you choose a size limit, so you can be sure that your files can travel fast. With FileStream TurboZIP Express you only have to ZIP once.

HJ B Compression has two broad elements:: a) reduction of file size, and b) reliability, i.e., the degree to which the reconstituted file is not a degraded version of the original. For some purposes, no degree of gradation is acceptable.

It would be helpful if the Vendor would comment upon any safeguards in this product against file degrdation.

Joe Miller Hi HJ B,

Thank you for your question.

TurboZIP Express compression does not create any degradation. Whatever you add to the compressed file will come out 100% the same when you uncompress it.

Stephen Cohen The description seems to suggest that with this program one can zip a file and then view and modify it without first unzipping it. Is this correct?

If so, does the file have to first be zipped with this program, or can one view and modify ANY zipped file without unzipping it?

If this program has this capability, then it is like the wonderful ZipMagic which, unfortunately, will not work properly with Win XP or later.

Joe Miller Hi Stephen,

The answer is Yes. Please allow me to be more specific. TurboZIP Express lets you view a wide range of file formats depending on the applications you have installed on your computer. It is referred to as ActiveX support. A good example is you can view PDF files from within the zip without unzipping it if you have Acrobat on your computer. The same with HTML, you can have ASCII (text) view and Web view.

TurboZIP Express comes with text editor and basic image editor, such as copy, paste, rotate, mirror. You can open a zip file, view, edit, any text based file (txt, html, xml, php, etc.) or image file and use the Actions, Update menu to transparently save the edited file back to inside zip. If you want to perform more elaborate image editing, you copy the image from within a zip file and edit it in an external image file, then paste it right back into the zip file.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask more questions.

Doug Atkinson If I Zip something in TurboZIP, can I unzip it in another application? How compatible is TurboZIP with other zip programs?

Joe Miller Hi Doug,

It is 100% compatible. If you zip something in TurboZIP Express, you should be able to unzip it in any popular zip program.

Stephen Cohen To Joe Miller: Thank you for your response. It appears that TurboZip goes partway to where ZipMagic did, but not all the way.

In ZipMagic one could treat ANY zipped file as if it were not zipped. For example, you could double click on and xyz would open and you could do anything to it as if it were not zipped. When you then closed it, it again became a zip file. Completely transparent--as if xyz were never zipped.

Apparently Mijenex products were bought by Avanquest and ZipMagic ended up with Smith software (makers of Stuffit). Smith/Stuffit made a version for XP,, but it had a bug that apparently could not be fixed.

Joe Miller Stephen,

Thank you again for your post. TurboZIP Express is way beyond ZipMagic in the following ways, none existed in ZipMagic:

1. TurboZIP Express creates .zip, and .cab. In addition, it lets you zip and unzip multiple files in one action including options of folder structures and different compression levels.

2. TurboZIP Express provides archive management features lets you display and sort files as you like.

3. TurboZIP Express comes with its built-in editors and viewers for many formats and ActiveX viewers.

4. TurboZIP Express supports ALL Windows platforms, including support for 32 and 64 bit Windows 7.

ZipMagic is ancient history and an outdated compression software as you pointed out. It was buggy too.

Michael R. I remember a zip program for Win95, called PTS-Zip.

If I remember right, it patched the OS this way, that the OS saw a zip-file like a directory. So you could add/remove/rename/... files within this zip-file with every program just the way you handle files within a directory.

Unfortunately it did not work any more in XP and beyond.

I really would like to see such a program for XP, Win7, ...

Perhaps the newer OS would not allow such tricks any more, but if would be possible to assign a drive-letter to a zip-file, like in
SUBST Z: c:\mydir\
this would be a bit step in this direction...
