There are oodles of file compression and archiving tools out there. IZArc is one of the better ones, and it's free. Along with standard .zip files, it can also work with Windows .cab files, .tar and .gz files and their variants from the *NIX world, and a whole lot more. You can even convert between various archive and CD image file formats. Drag-and-drop makes it easy to add individual files to a new or existing archive, or you can grab whole directories at a time. You can encrypt your archives so that your data is safe. Fully integrated with Windows Explorer, you can run most of IZArc through context-sensitive right-click menus. It'll even help you to repair corrupt files, which can be a lifesaver when the compressed archive is the only version of your data available.

A command line add-on is available, allowing you to automate your archiving through batch files. IZArc2Go is available separately as a fully-functional archive tool that fits on a USB flash drive, so you can take it with you anywhere and not have to worry about installation.

IZArc is a free Windows app available for both personal and corporate use. It'll run on anything from Win98 on up through Vista, including NT.
