    yeah? no?
    or would it be better to burn it, then copy & compress the files?

    i started to .rar a .bin, but it didnt look like it was making any gains on space

    but i only let it get to around 8% or so...

    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    you can convert it to an .ISO with winISO this will reduce the filesize

    thought about that, but i was hoping to make a really good gain on size,
    say, for an over the web transfer

    the file in question is around 370 megs in .bin format

    am i just wishin? or is there really hope?

    Yep, that'll make it much smaller than a .bin file. Then you can compress the .iso with WinRAR to make it even smaller (set it to Best compression method).

    yep, compressing a .bin doesn't do much, but Nightwolf's method should knock the size down a decent amount
