Question zipping files

Hi,

I have a folder with hundreds of sub-folders. I want to create a zip file by each sub-folder, with the name of the sub-folder:
folder1 --> folder1.zip
. .
folderN --> folderN.zip

Does anybody how can I do this?

Regards,

Assuming you have winzip installed on your machine, this is easy.

Just go to that folder, highlight the files/folders you want to zip, Right-click and mouse-over "winzip", and go to "add to Zip file". Select the directory you wan tthe .zip file to reside and you're done.

Winrar has a nice command line API. You can easily write batch file that uses this API and zips the folder.

Finally, I have found the solution using the winzip´s wzzip command line feature.
