split it



to ya both

lol, 7zip? It has great txt compression.

What kind of file is it?

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.

rich text document

i need to send hp a copy of the invoice for my laptop, and file can nly be 3MB


i have print screen and copied it to word

]For pics

For docs, just zip or rar it

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.

Sassie do a print screen and this time edit it in paint and save as a jpeg,

Winrar got a 10mb txt file of mine to 7kb. I'm actually impressed.
