Hi, I am new to this site and to file compressions in general, so excuse this newbie query. I am wondering why my WinRar (3.42) program can not compress an EXE file, ( 14,5MB), in Windows 2000 pro? The archived file is in fact almost identical or slightly larger than the original. My work-around was to split this EXE file into two files, so that I could send it by E-mail, is this the only way to do it? The various compression settings did not make any significant change..
