Chapter 7. Advanced File Management Techniques > Working with Compressed Files

Working with Compressed Files

File compression utilities make it possible to pack large files into small spaces. Therefore, they enable you to store large numbers of files in a single archive. Windows 98 users typically encounter compressed files in one of two formats:

  • CAB—Setup files for Windows 98 and other Microsoft products are stored in Cabinet format; you can recognize these files by the .CAB extension. Microsoft's Setup program processes cabinet files automatically, without requiring any utilities.

  • ZIP—The Zip compression format is a widely used standard for distributing files over the Internet. Windows does not include support for Zip files.
