How to highly compress bigger files to small size using winrar / winzip

Alight, I use this technique usually and it helped me reduce a 900mb ISO file to a few mb .rar file.

Yeah, you heard it right a 900mb file to a mere a few mbs file, but do remember that this totally depends on the type of file.

Let me break this into 2 parts.

Part#1 : Configuring the Winrar settings.

  • Step 1 : Open the winrar application.
  • Step 2 : Go to Options > Settings or just hold the Ctrl + S.
  • Step 3 : In the settings window go to the Compression tab and under compression profiles, click on the Create Default? button.

  • Step 4 : Now under the Set default compression options click on the Compression method and select Best.
  • Step 5 : Under the Archiving options check Create solid archive and Lock archive. This must now look something like this.

  • Step 8 : Click on OK and exit Winrar.

  • Wait for the compression to finish and once this is done you?ve finally got your highly compressed file.

Good Luck !
