Editors' Review


WinZip's latest update takes the industry-standard compression tool to new heights by adding the ability to manage and archive data in the cloud.


Comprehensive syncing: WinZip 19 lets you manage and sync with most popular cloud services: Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, MediaFire, SugarSync, and CloudMe.

Integrated experience: WinZip 19's newly streamlined interface is almost identical to Windows Explorer's, for a fluid transition between browsing files on your computer and managing files on WinZip. You can switch back to the classic view, if you prefer.

Effortless setup: Getting your accounts to work with the new WinZip is relatively easy. Just log in and give the app permission to maintain your files on your preferred cloud service. In our tests, some hosts like Box and Google Drive took time to get everything situated, but the overall process went smoothly.

Manage, back up, and share: You can now migrate data across different clouds, and encrypt, compress, or even back up data from one dashboard. Zipping files is still as fast as you would expect. Additional features like PDF conversion, watermark addition, or image resizing during zipping allow you to quickly upload and share your work.

Security: Encrypting your ZIP file in the cloud provides an additional layer of defense in case your account is compromised. So even if data thieves snatch your files, they can't access them.


Classic view hides new features: The classic interface is a welcome feature for veteran users but is not designed with the new features in mind. Performing basic tasks, such as transferring files between cloud services, is a chore, making you dig through menus and tabs. Stick to the new UI unless you're really attached to the classic look.

Bottom Line

WinZip 19 demonstrates how the prominent utility has moved beyond compression and unzipping. There's plenty to like about the latest WinZip: the uncomplicated interface, the ability to bridge different cloud services, and file encryption. If you're looking to manage all your cloud storage from a single interface, the new WinZip 19 is an excellent choice.

"Wow virus checker went crazy"

September 28, 2015  |  By RaybanMonster

 |  Version: WinZip 19.5


None whatsoever


Will install all sorts of adware, reminders and popups you absolutely do not need, but will no doubt harass you IN YOUR SYSTEM!


Avoid.. I cant believe that such a great product has now been infiltrated by this utterly unacceptable practice by owners Coral. Thank you AVG. I will never now install this product.. time for a new "zipper"

"Chock Full of Malware"

September 16, 2015  |  By BadGramps

 |  Version: WinZip 19.5


Absolutely none.


Installing Winzip will infect your machine with a multitude of malware. Eset NOD32 detected 12 malware programs that had to be removed. AVOID.


In fact, it's not wise to download anything that Cnet offers.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 19.5
  • Easier zipping: Built-in local and cloud file management means it is easy to browse and select the files you want without leaving WinZip. Touch support puts the power of WinZip at your fingertips on any touch-enabled device or computer. WinZip 19 is also optimized for 2-in-1 computers, switching its layout automatically depending on whether you are using your system in tablet or notebook mode.
  • Rich file management: Save time with the easy-to-access file management features built into the new WinZip 19 interface. Copy, move, rename and delete local and cloud files with ease. Open, edit and print local files. Plus, see how much space your devices and cloud services have available. Do all this and more without having to leave WinZip.
  • Change the interface to suit your task: Easily change the WinZip 19 interface to hide or show the features you need. WinZip 19 displays zipping features by default, but you can easily switch to the file management pane when you want to work with your files. Like the WinZip you know? Just click to use the familiar ribbon.
  • Easily find the features you need: WinZip is more dynamic than ever with the new context-sensitive action pane that changes to display the right tools for the job. When you are zipping files, for example, Save and Share options appear automatically, so you can quickly select the destinations for your zip.
  • More flexible file conversion: Whether you are converting to PDF, resizing photos, adding watermarks or encrypting, you can select or change settings before, during or after you have created your zip. Plus, WinZip lets you choose whether the changes are applied to all the files in your zip or only to the individual files you have selected.
  • Streamlined sharing: Get easy access to all your sharing options in the new WinZip interface to quickly share by email, your clouds, instant messaging services or popular social sites.
