    So if I create a .bat file and I stick the below in it should zip my files to the destination folder called test?


    C:Documents and SettingsDesktoptestZIPFILE.ZIP


    Please excuse my noob questions.

    Thank you in advance.

    The easiest way to create a zip file is through Windows Explorer:

    1) Select the files / directories you want to compress

    2) Right-click the selection and choose Send To -> Compressed (zipped) Folder

    If you want to create a zip file using the command line, then you need to install a compression utility like 7zip. By providing the proper command line arguments, then it is possible to compress the wanted files into a zip-file. More Info 7-Zip Command-Line Examples

    Hi snakefoot,

    thank you for your reply but I’m well aware of how to create a compressed file within win. explorer, what I’m after is an automated way to zip up files from one directory to another.

    So let say from folder A I want to run an automated task which can be set from Start-> all programs-> accesories-> system tools->scheduler to zip up all files to folder B

    I have already installed 7zip command line but again I need to set it and forget it.

    this is where I have a weak point:-)

    Thank you.

    Well if wanting to backup all the files in folder A and store the zip file in folder B:

    C:Program Files7-Zip7z.exe a -tzip C:A*.*
