The Backup/Clean tab of the WinZip Ribbon provides updated powerful WinZip Backup features and it gives access to a variety of WinZip Background Tools.
This first section really contains one button that acts as a toggle. Only the features that are relevant will show and they will change when you click the toggle.
- Advanced Secure Backup: When the toggle reads this you can click it to see all of the WinZip Backup features that have been available in earlier versions of WinZip.
- Simple Secure Backup: If you clicked Advanced Secure Backup and you would like to return to the simpler version, click this button.
