    hmmm... wouldn't let me edit my first message....

    I am very interested in archiving/zipping some dvd movie files to store and make space on my hard drive. I could free up almost 200gigs. The files are 4,7g. I tried zipping with normal compression which just zip format gave me a zipfile size of 4.2g. I also tried TAR which actually increased the size of the file to 4.9g. I would really like to move to a storage drive, but I don't want to lose any quality. So any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I appreciate your suggestion, 7-zip is what I was using. It only has zip, tar, and 7s. zip only slightly saved space, tar actually increased the size of the file, and when I tried 7s the projected time was well over an hour so I skipped that one. I might as well just make dvds to store them, that would take less time than using 7s. I'll see if there is a more up to date version, maybe they have added formats.
