So... my subscription to WinZip expired a while ago and I'm tired of spending all that money for it. I first tried 7Zip and now the trial version of WinRAR. I have a bunch of medical software programs I want to download to the SD card on my Windows Mobile 6.5 based HTC Touch Pro 2. My problem is that once I use the above free unzip programs I get a list of files I have NO IDEA of what to do with from inside the WinRAR program in order to be able to sync with my phone to store on the SD card.
I know there must be some really easy way to do this, but for the life of me, I can't figure it out!
Could someone out there take me through a step-by-step tutorial on how to use this zip utility to get programs onto my phone?

Well, I use 7Zip for any unzipping and never have a problem.

Right click on the file, choose 7Zip, and extract to Folder (Auto Named).

Open that folder and do whatever you want. If you choose another option, you are liable to have files scattered everywhere but the above method keeps it all together.
