Ok. This is the program I have for compression.
However, when compressing a folder to a .RAR file, I right click on the folder. However, there seems to be several options to choose from when trying to compress this. They are:
1. Add to Archive...
2. Add to "CD1.rar"
3. Compress and email...
4. Compress to "CD1.rar" and email
Anyway, I tried right clicking all these to hopefully know what's the difference between them. Right clicked the first one, and it was going to begin something, but instead of starting it I just closed it down.
The second option, I also right clicked, and then it immediately began compressing it, and the compression window at the top said "Creating archive CD1.rar"
I'm beginning to think all of these are the same, except that two of the options involve emailing the compressed file.
Is this true? Do all of these option create the same result in the end? I don't really care about the email part, just the compressed file.
Finally, one last question. When something is compressed to a .RAR file, it is obviously taking up less space on the hard drive.
However, when the contents of the compressed file is extracted, it brings out the same folder and its original size as well?
Like lets say I'm compressing a 2 GB folder, and the compressed file is 1.4 GB. If I extracted the compressed file, would a 2 GB folder come out of it, or would the folder be lighter in size?
Thanks a lot in advance.
