Meanwhile, Windows now supports directly packed data files. Data maintenance thus should become even easier in the future. Zipped measurement data can also be viewed "on the fly" with the Windows internal Explorer, even when the hard drive network doesn't outline a necessary reason. Packing data into smaller files is how Zip-data files eases data handling: a Zip-data file can contain several different data files (test procedures, error log data, results in xls format ...). Forwarding through e-mail is also made easier.
