What is a Zipx file extension?

Zipx files are created using one or more advanced compression methods developed by WinZip. If you are using WinZip to create compressed files, you can choose between legacy compression and what is know as best method compression, which will deliver the smallest compressed files. This method of compression allows WinZip to select the best compression method for each type of file you want to include in your zip. The zipx format uses the most recent compression methods to provide optimal results. WinZip is a zipx extractor for both Windows and Mac.
