I just tried both WinZip and WinRar to compress a 39.3MB folder.
The file size of the compressed was:
WinZip: 36MB (WinZip 12.0 evaluation copy)
WinRar: 26.2MB (WinRar 3.80 evaluation copy)
As the above numbers may indicate, the compression ratio is very disappointing.
Is it so because I used evaluation copies?
Overall which one is better?
My second related question is:
When I sent a folder compressed by WinRar to someone who has Winzip, should the
receiver have WinRar too to open the folder?
Thanks a lot!
