    Default How can we compress a 2GB file to 500 kb?

    hey guys.... i wanna know how can i compress a 2GB file into a 500kb file. yesterday i have got a file sized 410kb rar which included 1 mdb file sized 2GB. can we do it with Winrar any version? is there any s/w to make a compress file like that? if i make one, is there any data damaging chance? now i tried with WinRar, but its make a 198 MB file to 170MB [best]

    now it depends that which file are u trying to compress. If the file is a doc,xls,mdb then u can of course compress it to that extent but if u want to compress the image file or a video file (which is actually compressed) then u will not get any compresssion whatever u may use... winrar,winzip or whatever

    There is something called a Mini-image which has come out now.

    "A mini-image is a partial image of the cd and includes a part of the program recorded on the cd (albeit a very small part). If used for legitimate back-up purposes (i.e. so that the game/app can be played/run by mounting the mini-image whilst the original is put away for safe-keeping), that's ok.

    However, if hex editing is required to make the mini-image, that involves a modification of part of the program without the copyright holder's permission and that is, of course, illegal.
    "

    These are just about 600KB-5MB & work as a No-cd crack, etc.

    Regarding other files, i remember a compressor called UHARC which had tremendous compression speeds, which had compressed GTA 3 into a 200MB folder. (However, the radio files & some sound files were deleted)
    Dont ever involve in a dispute with a fool. The viewers might not be able to distinguish between the two :rolleyes:

    My dear friend, I guess you are mistaken in figures. Check out the image that you have posted.

    The file size it shows clearly says that the total compression if calculated is about 85% of the original file size, and compressing that is is pretty simple.

    The file size it is showing is in Bytes and not KB. If taking the first file as an example, the original file size if of 2719 KB and the compressed file is of 405 KB. Just ckeck it out again and you will see where you got mistaken...
