What was the extension of the compressed file and what types of files did it contain?

But it really isn't about the program doing the compressing but the data that is being compressed. Some types of files, such as many image files, are already compressed and any attempts at further compression will accomplish little if anything. Some file types, such as text files and some others, compress very well.

Hi LMiller,
The file that i downloaded with the extension of .zip inside the the zip file is a .iso extension.

Regard Stuckfree,
Thanks.

It sounds like the decompression got stuck in a loop. Multi-GB iso images compressed to less than a GB would be written up as amazing. Sounds like something is broken.
