So what I wanted to do is compress files (using 7zip) and split a 600MB folder into 199MB parts, but sadly when I tried to do this task with archive manager it gave me an error, but I know that if I use terminal it will work.
You may at times need to create a series of small compress files for a big file ( for instance, when you want to upload a very big file to Mediafire or Rapidshare, you will need to split this file into small parts). In Windows, the most popular tool for this task is WinRar to create rar files. In Linux, you can use the rar utility to compress a big file then split in into small parts as well.
I'm running Debian on my old PC and I'd like
to know how to compress a tar file real good !
I've got a directory of files totaling 10 Gigs.
I wanted a single file of them so I used tar.
Now I'd like to compress that tar file as best
OK, here's the scenario. I need to compress five files, and I want to zip it instead of using the more efficient/useful formats out there because some of the people who need it are Windows users who will be relying on Windows default zip support instead of better tools like 7zip. That's just the way it is. No problem, right?
I recently learned about the convert command from imagemagick which I have used to compress many pictures that I have for personal use, and for a blog that I have. In my experience, Imagemagick is the best image compressor program, and it gives one the most control over how to compress images.
I've written an article about some tricks you can do with ffmpeg, in today's article, I will show you another trick - compressing avi and mp4 video files with a simple command with a only a small loss in video quality.
If you dont have ffmpeg already installed, you can run this command to install it in Ubuntu and other Debian-based distros:
sudo apt-get install libav-tools
