Compressed backup

I need a compressed backup system the I can call from within my VB5 project. It must be able to span disks, and I must be able to legally distribute it with my application. Any suggestions? 50 point bonus for a good answer!!!

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I have purchased copies of WinZip before to use with Access VBA. WinZip is able to span disks. www.winzip.com

Can Winzip be called and arguments passed to it from within a VB application? If so how?

Download an evaluation copy of WinZip from www.winzip.com along with the beta command line software.  There are help files that will show the different commands.  Then look up the Shell function to run the program.
