Best File Compression Software?

Recommended Posts

For files that are close to the size limit, I've been able to use Stuffit to zip the file.

But in real life it's much easier to do an ftp or to post the file on a web site and let someone else download it.

You're a mac user - you could just get a .mac account. It's worth it just for this, but there are other benefits, too.

You can also just use the built-in OSX ability to create Zip archives: right-click on the file(s) and select 'Compress (your file name here)'.

PC users usually don't have Stuffit Expander installed, which is why I always send Zipped files.

As Michael said, FTP is a good option if the files are still too large to email after compression.
