    File Compression

    Discussion started by S@T@N - Jul 8, 2003

    So I downloaded Medal of Honor: Spearhead on my girlfriend's DSL
    because it's a 750 mb file, and I didn't quite feel like trying to get it on
    my 56K. However, a 750 mb file isn't gonna fit on the 700 mb discs I
    have, so I've resorted to file compression. I tried WinZIP and WinACE
    separately, but I only got it down to 718 mbs. I then tried a combo of the
    two, which resulted in a file 1.5 gb's in girth. I need to know the best
    possible method of compression so that maybe I can fit this on a single
    CD-R.



    P.S. This may seem trivial, and it is. But I waited a fucking week for it to
    download and I'm not going to give up easily.

    Here's what you do..... go look up the UHARC compression algorithm. It was created by Uwe Herklotz

    http://digilander.libero.it/winuha/

    there are ways to find it online, although it's hard to get ahold of. I swear by this program because I've seen it compress files to almost 2000%.... which is very far beyond ACE, ZIP, RAR etc...... I cannot offer any support on it though.... so take what I've told you and run with it.

    access to everything now, which is fuckin great. thanks for the tips, but
    this is the easiest way for the effort I'm willing to put in.
