I'm having a hard time searching for a software that can batch compress files AND delete the sources. I tested PowerArchiver2010 and ArcThenALL but both don't have the delete option.

Creating a script is out of question, because of the large number of folders and files.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Hi Marcio80,

PowerArchiver2010... from the manual....


* "Add" - adds all specified files to the archive.
* "Update" - similar to Freshen, but it also adds any specified files that are not already in the archive.
* "Freshen" - updates files already in the archive that have the same names as files being added.
* "Move" - works similar to Add, except those files are actually deleted from the disk after they are added. :thumbup2:
