Compress

CompressAlternatively referred to as compact, compress is the process of taking one or more files and making them smaller by using a compression algorithm in a compression utility. Commonly, file compression will combine each of the compressed files into one compressed file containing each of the files. Compressed files enable downloading and sharing files to be easier by shrinking the overall size and allowing a user to download one file instead of dozens or hundreds of smaller files.
