Why You Need to Compress Files
But in most cases compressing a file is a way of saving the file from virus or other malware that can attack or corrupt your data. It’s also another way of organizing files. Let’s take for instances you want to send pictures to a friend’s Email or pdf documents that are more than one. In other to send them as one file you have to compress them. It’s just like putting all you documents in a folder. Winrar helps to break large file size into smaller size irrespective of how large the file size is.
There are other software that can also be use to compress file. But one amazing feathers I fund when using winrar was that I can be able to split a file irrespective of the file type or size.
When I got the recent version of adobe creative suite it was up to 8gigabyte. It was downloaded right to on my PC. I wanted to share it with a friend using disc (DVD) with file size of 4.77gigabyte. Because of the size I need to make use of two disc splitting the file was completely inpossible. But with winrar in respective of file size you can split the file to any size and burn them to different disc and get it extracted as one file.
Or maybe you want to upload a video file to a web site that have limit to size. You can split the video to various sizes. But most importantly when the user Is downloading the file he has to download all the files so as to be able to extract the complete file. You can’t download one file and expect to get the complete video you have to download everything and extract them to get the complete file.
