This PC that I'm using has no winzip...!!!!???!!!!

I'm using shell23 to unzip and zip files. During Unzip, its fine. But when I do Zip, got the whole day to zip 13 Thousand pdf files in a single folder.

when i tried doing the manual zip, it only took me 25 to 30 seconds..

Should I install winzip???

The other alternative is to try something like SharpZipLib and roll your own app round it - but if this is an infrequent thing, then zip would probably be good enough.

They do a trial version, but the full job is not expensive. The only thing to look for is that the later version can produce .zipx files by default - which are not readable unless you have winzip. If you need backward compatibility, then look out for that.
