100% compression



  • Hi there,

    I have just sent a large log file to tech support of one of my programs. PA, using compatible ZIP and 7z, managed to compress the file by 100%. This is impossible I assume. I have never seen anything like this in all my years of using PA.
    I have uploaded the file to www.drteeth.co.uk/pd for your investigation. It is the only file in that directory.

    I look forward to hearing what is going on.

    Cheers

    it is just 149 lines of text and then empty. ZIP compresses it to 17kb but PA is much better at 3kb.

    You can just open it up in notepad to see.

    Thanks!
