For past few days i have been trying to figure out on how to zip my subfolders using xp_cmdshell. I have tried finding out in Google but no help.
I am using the below code:

select @cmdd = '""C:\Program Files\WinZip\wzzip.exe" -a -r "C:\Users\Testing.zip" "C:\Users\Test""'
exec master..xp_cmdshell @cmdd,no_output

Not sure where going wrong in the above..

I think you have an extra set of quotes, try this:
select @cmdd = '"C:\Program Files\WinZip\wzzip.exe" -a -r "C:\Users\Testing.zip" "C:\Users\Test"'
exec master..xp_cmdshell @cmdd,no_output

copy the print output and paste it into a dos box - does it work?
