AnyZip offers you the convenience of using more than one way to
add files to an existing archive. These include addition
through drag-and-drop, from the Windows
Explorer interface and wizard-driven updating,
which requires AnyZip to be open for adding files to the archive.
These methods of adding files to an archive are discussed in this
Addition through Drag-and-Drop
The drag-and-drop feature works with
the archive file open in the AnyZip main window as also with an
unopened archive file.
When a new file is to be added to
an archive which is already opened in the AnyZip Main Window, you
can drag-and-drop the file directly into the window from a folder
or from the desktop. This will launch the Add to Archive
window where you can specify rules related to the file being added.
Dropping a file into the window will add the file to the archive.
This feature is most convenient when the file to be added to
the archive is located at the lower level of a series of folders.
When this is used with the Preserve File Path option checked,
the entire path is also stored on the archive file.
You can also add a file to an archive
without opening the archive file. In order to do so, drag-and-drop
the file to be added on to the AnyZip icon that denotes the target
archive. After you drop the file, the Add to Archive window
is displayed. This can be used to specify rules regarding the inclusion
of the file. When you click OK, the file is added to the target
The drag-and-drop option works for
both Files and Folders that are to be added to an archive. When
you drag-and-drop a folder, all its contents, including sub-folders
and their contents, are added to the archive file and details related
to the file path are stored in the archive.
Addition through Windows Explorer
Adding a file to an archive through
the Windows Explorer is done in the same way as creating a new archive.
In order to add the file to an archive, right click the name of
the files to be added and bring up the AnyZip Explorer Sub-Menu.
In this sub-menu, select the Add to Archive option. This will launch
the Add to Archive window where you can select the name of the archive
to which the file is to be added. After you click OK, the highlighted
files are added to the archive file. AnyZip's Context Menu ensures
that when you right click a file type other than an archive, the
options displayed in the sub-menu only related to creating an archive
and adding files to an archive.
