7-Zip claims the highest compression ratio:

Quote:
7-Zip 4.32 Description
7-Zip is a file archiver with the highest compression ratio. The program supports 7z, ZIP, RAR, CAB, ARJ, LZH, CHM, CPIO, RPM, DEB, GZIP, BZIP2, Z and TAR formats. Compression ratio in the new 7z format is 30-50% better than ratio in ZIP format. Also 7-Zip compresses to ZIP 2-10% better than PKZip and WinZip. 7-Zip has additional powerful command line version and FAR Manager support.
This is not my forte, so consider it heresay.

Try KGB Archiver. It is free and has by far the best compression rate.
