Two programs which help reduce the size of your files.
File compression is used to shrink or expand files to use less disk space. File Compression software will archive your files and extract archived files formats such as ZIP and RAR. There are many compression tools out on the market but 2 easy to use ones are:
WinRAR: WinRAR is a very popular compression and decompression tool supporting a wide range of formats. This program is easy to use and is quite fast. For ocassional needs of file compression this free software is good to have.
WinZip: WinZip is the world leader in file compression, file encryption, file sharing, and data backup. It has more features than WinRAR and if you will be compressing or decompressing a lot of files I would recommend WinZip 14 for its reliability and features. WinZip 14.0 is a brand new, high-performance zip engine with a streamlined user interface and email support. It is easy to use – you just need to drag files onto the new desktop gadget to instantly zip and save, zip and email, or unzip virtually any compressed file.
