Windows 7: Cannot compress folder to 8.00mb

24 Nov 2015   #1

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Cannot compress folder to 8.00mb


My CBS folder is 21mb, when I try to .rar or .zip it I can only get it down to 12mb.

Any suggestions on how to get it smaller - the max allowed is 8mb.

Thank you.

SOLVED: I just removed the CBS.log file (today's file), and compressed that. Hope it helps.
