Compress Data Without Any Software and Create Self Extracting Zip Archive
I have encountered a common problem with WINRAR and rar files many times. You might have experienced it yourself too. While extracting data, the files are extracted completely but it gives the message of ‘header corrupt’ and user gets the idea that files might not had been transferring completely. You can use other free compression software as well. HJSplit, 7Zip or RAR Knife are few. My question is this, why do you need any software for compression when you can do it without using any program? The compressed file will be safe and best of all, it will be self extracting kind of thing. You will not need any program to unzip it. Just transfer it anywhere and open it in any Windows based OS freely.
I have got ‘Miss USA 2009’ and ‘Dancing With The Stars’ videos to compress. Look in the figure above.
Just right click at the data, select ‘send to’ -> Compressed (zipped) folder.
And you are done.
The data will be compressed and this zipped folder can be opened freely anywhere without using any compression software. And you just compressed data without using any compression software.
