Either download a new copy of Winzip, or grab 7zip (which is freeware).

Google "7zip download" and grab the freeware compression/decompression utility from SourceForge.

It does everything Winzip/RAR etc do, but costs nothing.
It's a great little piece of software.

I have lost Ezonics web cam IV driver CD and unable to find driver on the net unable to find them, kindly help to instal my web cam on my system using win - XP OS EZONICS USB CAMERA, M/N : CAM IV


I have found a link to the driver file for CAM IV. Click here for the download.

The download is a 16 MB zip file. Extract it contents on the desktop. There will be two files: CamIVxp.zip and driver updater. Delete driver updater and extract CamIVxp. Double click on Setup and wait for it to install the drivers. Connect your cam after the install completes.

If you are using Vista, and the setup does not run, try compatibility mode and remember that setup can only be run after the files are extracted and cannot be run from within the zip file.

I have SimpleTech drive that I used Storage Sync to back up C drive. Took drive to work and since all the files are 'bpa' cannot open them. I compare this to a simulation of what I bought the drive for -...


The BPA files are the backed up copies of your data. The simpletech utility backs up your files to compresse file ending in BPA. Any computer running the simpletech restore program can extract the data from these files.

You will simply need to install this software on a spare computer in order to test the backups. Frankly though I would just use windows backup to copy the files/folders you want to the drive raw as this can be read anywhere.

Hope this helps FixYa,
