Default Zip a file from using Win XP compressed folder

I want to make VB Script that I can use to back up a file.

I want to use XP's compressed folder (or is it file) instead of calling out PKZip.exe

Anyone know how to do that?

I am not 100% sure of what you trying to do but why dont you just create a compressed folder on the machine and then copy the file to that folder with a script. This way it will also be compressed. If you move the file it won't compress it though.


Such is Life!
