Windows XP - Zip each file in folders

I'm going through some year end cleaning...  What I'm doing manually is going through each folder & subfolder and zipping each file individually.  Once I'm done with that I'm going to archive off to a network fileshare...

I was wondering if anyone had a method or knew of a program that I could point to any folder and it would zip each individual file in the current folder and each subfolder.

any ideas?

Why would you want to zip each individual file? I would right click on each folder and select 'send to' compressed folder. This will compress at the folder level and will save you a lot of time.
using 7z (freeware zip app) you can try the following:

@echo off
for /R %%i in (*) do "<ENTER THE PATH HERE TO>\7z.exe" a -t7z -mx=7 -ms=off "%%i.7z" "%%i"
goto end

Easy as a pie...
Use Winrar, Right Click Folder -> Go to Files tab -> Select Put Each File to Separate Archive
