    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.
