Thread: Compression

  1. #1
    Just wanted to ask you guys if anyone know which archiver is the best? ok ok I know it´s not the best thing to do when sharing, preview wont work and so on but not much of a choice space space space always trying to get more space

    I got so much of movies, mpeg, avi etc that i cant just throw away (or maybe I should buy a new HD , but until then dont have the heart to chuck them and I just need to share them with you guys

    I´ve been trying RAR but it doesn´t seem to be that effective and it´s slow as well.
    So i said to myself, why should I sit here trying to compress the same file over and over again to see which archiver is the best when I have a whole bunch of storageholics to ask here

    So what you think, rar, zip, arj, ace or......

    I´m just going too..... said Alfie Atkins

    movie files are pretty well compressed the way they are now
    the best compression ratio you'll get is just under 1%

    but if you're really desperate use 7-zip, and find another way to free up disk space

    EDIT: Horrible grammar

    Don't bother compressing your archives, you won't save much space. Though, RAR is still the best format in my opinion. Its slow, but it works.
