To compress a file simply means to decrease the file size without affecting the file contents, and in this post i’ll be explaining how to compress a 1GB file into 10MB, that’s like turning a 4GB file into 40MB.
The major purpose of compressing files is simply to save memory or free up memory on your PC. So, is your PC already filled up and you really want to carve out a reasonable storage space to save more files? At the end of this post you’ll be able to achieve that easily.
How are we going to do this? We will be using an incredible and trusted file compressing software, the KGB Achiver. It’s practically the best file compressor out there.
Here are few things i love about this software: It’s totally free, no charges / Its compression rate is just awesome / You can create a password to protect compressed files / It has a very easy interface. Let’s quickly move into the main job here.
How To Compress a 1GB File Into 10MB
1st Step: Download the KGB Achiver, once downloaded, proceed with the below steps.
2nd Step: Install the downloaded KGB software on your PC, open it and select the compress file option, then click on “next”.
3rd Step: Follow the below image to select the folder you wish to save all the files you’ll compress, set the compression level to “maximum”, click “add file” to choose the file you wish to compress, then hit “next”.

This software compresses pretty fast, but the time still depends on the file size. I’ve successfully compressed a 2GB file into 20MB.
There’s now no need to be afraid of receiving heavy files to your PC. Just follow the above steps, compress those memory consuming files and notify us on how fast the process was (via comment).
