Add Files or Folders to ZIP Archives Programmatically in C#
The ZIP archives are used to compress and keep one or more files or folders into a single container. A ZIP archive encapsulates the files and folders as well as holds their metadata information. The most common usage of archiving is reducing the size of the files for storage or transmission and applying encryption for security. Apart from the file compression tools, the automated compression/extraction features are also used within various desktop and web applications for uploading, downloading, sharing, or encrypting the files.
