How to compress a file using 7zip

Post by kelly1990 » Thu Dec 27, 2018 3:14 pm

Hi, I saw in a tutorial on youtube how to compress a file using 7zip website. One example shown was a 4gb file compressed to 800 MB. I tried it on my end to compress a 1.37 Gb file and I was expecting it to be smaller in size but I got the same file size as the original. Why is it like that?

Well, maybe because your file already is compressed?

File is probably compressed, just like EmuandCo has mentioned (Word *.docx files are archives too), or file is in format where you will achieve little to no compression, like *.mp4 files

Little evidence of that yet, but very possible due to the pattern. Discuss something offtopic, or even offtopic, maybe without the spam... I did report several of another guy which already had the links filtered out by the server. Even without the links, I knew it was spam, since why would someone pass off my words and those of other users as their own in the same thread without adding any value to the discussion? That might be automated, since they take words that are proven to be accepted and say them too, hoping that camouflages the URL.
