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.

Thanks,

KW
