An advantage to using this PC system utilities software is the wide assortment of management and diagnostic features available. WinZip offers Smart PC Care, a feature that offers an assortment of scans to find any problems that may be infecting your computer. When using Smart PC Care, you can customize your scan and choose from your computer's systems to inspect. These systems include files stored on the hard drive, registry errors, drivers or specific privacy traces that needs to be removed from the computer. Using the schedule tool, you can schedule set times for scans to run on your computer. You can choose the type of scan to take place, the frequency of the scan such as daily, weekly or monthly, or you can choose a specific time during the day or week. The scheduler is not only available for Smart PC Care, but for other scanning features WinZip offers as well.

The WinZip System Utilities Suite also provides the ability to analyze your computer. This tool provides an assortment of information telling you about your computer and the files and data stored on your hard drive.

This PC system utilities software also provides a large selection of repair and recovery tools to improve your computer's performance. Once you have diagnosed any problems, you can use WinZip to fix common computer problems. One such tool is the startup manager. This feature sorts through the computer's startup programs and removes any programs that are not needed. By removing unnecessary programs from startup, your computer will run faster during startup. Also, an uninstall manager is available which simply allows you to uninstall any programs you may have downloaded on the computer. The deletion of these programs will free up your disk space and keep your computer healthy. Unfortunately, you can't erase or create partitions using WinZip, which would help you to better manage the hard drive and your computer's data.

Managing, organizing and deleting files and data on the computer can be scary, especially if you do not have an extensive background in computers. The WinZip System Utilities Suite provides a variety of backup and recovery tools to prevent data from being lost. The backup manager allows you to back up all of your files in case your computer crashes or you accidently delete the file. The Restore System Files feature allows you to restore all of those backed-up files. Or if you delete a file that you didn't intend to delete, using the Undo Delete feature, you can also restore that document. Although, if you have a file you would like to erase that contains confidential information, you can use the Secure Deletion tool to damage the file so it cannot be restored.
