When formatting our personal computers, one safe way of keeping our important files is by back-upping it. Back-upping your files could be through saving those files in or flash drives or burning them into compact disks or saving them to a disk drive that you wouldn’t format.

However after finally set-upping your computer after formatting, there would be instances like you are unable to open some of your files because they are not compatible to the software versions you have installed in your computer. Example, I’m always settled with using Windows XP Operating System, I find it more safe than the latest versions. The only problem is that it doesn’t have a built-in or already installed office like Microsoft Word, Excel and other related file organizing software. You have to install it manually.  So you install them. It’s great if the software you install are the latest versions because latest version can open old version files however if you are to install an older version, you’ll be having problem with opening files that are made in newer version.

Consider, you have .docx files. You have a lot of them. You must have encoded them in the computer of your school or in your office or in internet cafes and them you went home and found out that you can’t open them in your PC because you have an older version of office.

You don’t have to worry about it anymore. Let me introduce to you Zamzar. Zamzar is an online converting website where you can convert your files from docx to doc and many others. You can even use the site to download videos online. You can convert pictures to another file. And here is the exciting part, you get to convert everything you want for free. You just have to upload your file in the site, choose the file you need the file to be converted into, enter your email and click convert. After uploading, Zamzar will send an email to you where you can download your file. It’s so easy and you don’t need to install any software in your computer.

However, if you are someone like me who wants to do it with no signing up, you can do so but your files only have 24 hours stay in their database, if you don’t download it within the allotted time, then they would delete the file and you can’t download it anymore. You’re going to go back from the start.

If you sign-up and become a member, you’ll get to convert a maximum of 1 GB files, have 100 GB inbox space and the conversion will be a lot more faster. You also get to manage everything you have converted and those files will not be deleted unlike those who visit the site for free. Being a member of Zamzar is free. You don’t have to pay for anything.
