Zipped files are used to refer to the files with the extensions .zip or .rar. The file extension .zip or .rar are an archive file format that supports lossless data compression. This is to say that it supports combining and compressing a multiple number of files into one. It not only enables you to combine multiple files but also compress them, thereby saving you some disk space.
Why use zipped files? Zipped files are used mostly to enable easy sharing of content. With the famous email clients that we use such as yahoo, gmail and Hotmail, this files normally have a limit on the maximum number of files one can attach and also go to the extent of having a maximum size limit. With zipped files, one can easily combine several files onto one. Combining several files onto one will enable you bypass the maximum number of files you can attach.
One can also split a large file into several small files. If you love downloading am sure you have come across sites that have several zipped files for just one file. They do this mostly for very large files. This enables them to easily split one large files into several smaller files, which can then be downloaded and combined to have the one complete file. This is a good way to save files, cause you can imagine downloading a file that is 4 GB. If the internet connection is lost, your download stops. Splitting the 4 GB file into smaller file size of probably 400 mb will enable you download the file slowly until you finish downloading the complete file.
