Using Winzip

by KAWill70 - 8/4/10 11:30 AM

I've been using Winzip to archive Thunderbird Email which is stored in a profile with many files and folders.

Winzip provides four choices:

Add & Replace Files
Freshen Existing Files
Move and Replace Files
Update & Add Files

I also use "Add with Wildcards" and "Include Subfolders".

I have successfully zipped the files and folders in the profile, and after unzipping everything matches the original profile.

Here is the specific question: When the profile changes, Winzip can Update or Freshen, but I don't believe it can remove a file or folder in the zip archive that is no longer in the profile being zipped.

Am I correct in that assumption? If so, what is the solution?

If the assumption is correct, note that the zip file would contain data that is no longer in the profile.
