We are expanding our toolbox of file services by allowing you to compress files online. If you need to quickly zip a file online you can do this at www.docx2doc.com. For those unix users we also allow you to gzip a file online, which will give you the resulting file with a .gz extension.
Using compression you can reduce the file size significantly, sometimes up to 90%. If you have a large file that cannot be e-mailed because it is too big you can try compressing it first which may reduce the size enough to be allowed through various mail services.
Another application for compression is to archive a large file, allowing you to save space on your computer's hard drive. This is typically used when a large file is unlikely to be used in the near term, such as a backup or if you're operating system is complaining that you are low on disk space.
