The add-on program KSSW-Archive protects your files from unwanted attacks. The files are encoded in an archive file, similar to Winzip. The files within the archive can be linked to any of the Front End Menu buttons. The files can also be unpacked to a file of the user's choice.
The KSSW Archive Software user interface resembles the well-known and well-spread program Winzip, and is intuitive to use.
