lol, 7zip? It has great txt compression.
#8
What kind of file is it?
#9
Is it an image? If it is it sounds as if you saved it as a BMP file, you could try and convert it to JPEG.

despite the great software 7zip is, i doubted it can compress from 8 to 3 MB

i think the best option is to either split it (e.g. using HJsplit) or compress & split

Try going to your folder, right click and choose New -> Compressed (Zipped) Folder then drag the file into there, see how big the resulting file is.

did you scan this ? use lower DPI setting on scanner.

Invoice pdf etc. then screen grab [prt scrn key] and save as png then compress with 7zip [url]www.7zip.org[/url] install it then add to archive with options as below
