    Hi, due to 1 thing or another before I plan to close down 1 of my websites I want to save all my zip files data to my PC. Is there an easy way to do this rather than download each file 1 at a time as there are roughly 1000 files

    Wende :eek:)

    Generate a Full Website backup with the tools in your cPanel:
    Backups - cPanel Documentation

    You can generate the backup to be left in your home directory and then open cPanel File Manager to get to it and download from there to your home computer.

    Many thanks Infopro :) I'm doing that now, what is .tar.gz?

    Done my homework so now know what a .tar.gz file is, can anyone recommend what to unzip it with within Windows?

    The .tar.gz file is an archive.
