Whatever you do, but a 335MB size folder is not going to get much smaller. You can also go to Properties > Advanced of that folder and check "Compress contents to save disk space" > OK > Apply. But in any case, don't expect to attach this to a mail. If you want to send it, you have to first upload it and then sent the URL. You can use File Factory (http://www.filefactory.com/). They allow a maximum size of 300MB per file.

Just use Winrar, or 7-zip, that should compress it a bit

Thanks for pointing that out. It was a typo (twice - lol). I corrected it.
