Welcome to ZipTite, the easiest way to Zip, Share, Back-up and Password-Protect your files.
When you download
and run ZipTite, you'll notice that it places a ZipTite icon in your Menu Bar:
This icon is how you interact with ZipTite:
You drag files onto the icon to create Zip Archives
You click on the icon to access the ZipTite menu
Because ZipTite lives in the Menu Bar, it is available to you at all times.
There are two ways to create Zip Archives with ZipTite: QuickZips and CustomZips.
QuickZips are the easiest way to create Zip Archives:
You drag files onto the ZipTite Menu Bar Icon
Pause a moment
Drop the files onto the Destintion where you want the Zip Archive to go
ZipTite will then create the Zip Archive, name it, potentially apply a password, and then route the Archive to the Destination you selected.
When you create QuickZips, ZipTite uses its QuickZip Name setting to determine how to name them.
Click on the ZipTite icon in the Menu Bar to set the QuickZip Name setting you prefer:
Selecting this will result in all QuickZips you create having the name "ZipTite Archive".
Derive Name from Source
If you select this, ZipTite will name your QuickZips based on the names of the files you are archiving.
Ask For Name
With this option, ZipTite will ask you to provide the name of each QuickZip that you create.
Use Preset Name
Choose this setting to have all your QuickZips use a custom name.
You can set or change the custom name by selecting "Set Preset Name..." from the ZipTite menu.
Similarly, when you create QuickZips, ZipTite uses its QuickZip Password setting to determine how to apply a password, if any.
Click on the ZipTite icon to set the QuickZip Password setting you prefer:
Selecting this will have ZipTite not password-protect your QuickZips.
Ask For Password
With this option, ZipTite will ask if you want to provide a password for each QuickZip that you create.
Use Preset Password
Choose this setting to have all your QuickZips use a custom password.
You can set or change the custom password by selecting "Set Preset Password..." from the ZipTite menu.
In addition to QuickZips, you can also create CustomZips with ZipTite.
CustomZips are useful when you want to specify the Name, Password as well as the Destination for a given Zip Archive on the fly.
Simply drag the files you want to archive and drop them directly onto the ZipTite icon in the Menu Bar.
The CustomZip dialog will open where you can enter the Name, Password, Select the Destination and then create the Archive:
ZipTite then creates the Zip Archive with the Name and Password you provded, and then routes the Archive to the Destination you selected.
Much of the ease and power of ZipTite lies in its Destinations, which allow you to automatically route your Zip Archives to various places all with the simplicity of Drag-and-Drop.
ZipTite provides several Destinations:
Alongside Source: places the Archive next to the files that are archived.
Desktop: places the Archive on your Desktop.
Email: attaches the Archive to a new email.
Any Folder: places the Archive in any folder you choose.
Backups Folder: places the Archive in a new "Backups" folder.
Messages: shares the Archive via Apple's Messages App.
Air Drop: shares the Archive via Air Drop.
iCloud Drive: stores the Archive on your iCould Drive.
Dropbox: places the Archive in your Dropbox folder.
FTP: uploads the Archive to an FTP server.
The Dropbox Destination can also copy a Dropbox Share Link of the Archive to the System Clipboard as well as share the link via Email or Messages.
You can add, remove and configure ZipTite Destinations. To do so, open the Destinations Window by clicking on the ZipTite icon in the Menu Bar and selecting "Destinations..." from the ZipTite menu. This window displays your entire set of Destinations.
When you mouse over a Destination, its name will appear at the bottom of the Window.
As well, its Remove (X) and Configure (Down Arrow) buttons appear above its icon.
Click the Remove button to remove the Destination from ZipTite.
Click the Configure button to configure the Destination. The type of configurability depends on the Destination.
To add a new Destination, click on the "Add New Destination" Destination (Large Plus Icon).
You will be presented with a list of Destination types that you can add. Select the type of Destination you wish to add and a new Destination will be added to the Window.
You can name any Destination as you wish. And the following Destinations have additional configurability.
For details, visit their respective Configuration Pages.
