How to create relative path archives in IZArc2Go?
In addition to the simple compression and decompression operations, IZArc has several functions advanced to protect and repair the files, or even split them into several. By default, anyone can unzip the files and exploit their content.
To avoid any indiscretion
It is necessary to protect the files with a password, since its content is encrypted and the file cannot be opened without the corresponding sesame. Once the file is created, you can choose to protect it. In the window that appears during the process, you must scroll through the encryption list, at the bottom right, and choose, for example, AES 256 bits.
Then you must click the Password button and, in the window that appears, entering the password, it must be revealed to anyone authorized to open the file. So, the password is retyped (as a verification measure). Then, proceed as usual. Therefore, the file will normally be created with a .ZIP extension.
Encrypt an existing file
If the file has already been created, it can be encrypted afterwards protecting it with a password. To do this, start IZArc, pull down the Tools menu, Encrypt. In the window that opens, click the small Browse button to the right of the Standard File field. A new window will open allowing you to navigate through the hard drive tree.
Open the folder where the archive is located
Select the file (for example, MyExcelSheets.zip). By default, IZArc offers you the name MyExcelSheets.ize as an encrypted file. If this name is accepted, you must click OK.
The folder C: Work: MyExcelSheets.zip
should be written a password and click OK, then type it again and click OK. You now have two zipped files in the C: Work folder: unencrypted MyExcelSheets.zip and encrypted MyExcelSheets.ize. Then, the unencrypted file is deleted if necessary. Attention, the encrypted file can only be opened on a PC in which IZArc is installed.
Open the encrypted file
To do this, you must start Windows Explorer and double-click on the file encrypted (the file with the .IZE extension). IZArc opens and in the Destination Path field, type the name of the compressed (unencrypted) file to be created (the .ZIP extension is received) and then click Decrypt. Then the password is entered and clicked on OK.
Repair a damaged file
It only takes one error during compression or data transfer to make the file unreadable. Fortunately, IZArc can correct most of these errors, thanks to an integrity checking technique. To activate it, the Tools menu, Repair File, must be displayed. Then click on the small button to the right of the Damaged File field, browsing the disk tree, select the file and click Repair.
