First of all, thank you very much for all of the great uploads. We have a nice FTP now.

And I guess, about 60 GB space left.

Cheers...

Haven't visit the ftp, but to save space & downloadtime, maybe the files should be packed with 7zip (if they are please forget my post)

7z is my packer of choice at the moment

would be nice if some1 tidied the server up a bit, all the same packed format but if its on a remote server it could take a little time.

bets on that 60gig being filled before christmas

On the weekend I will try to repack some zips and pack iso that aren't packed yet. I think files packed with RAR are okay (the difference is too small for the time it takes)

well it very much depend on the image, sometimes you really get a lot smaller file with 7zip compared to rar, and sometimes not

But 7zip is number 1

I would use 7z but it has no Recovery Record feature yet, though i hear it is beign worked on. For the iso on ftp that are not packed testing between rar and 7z i did a test.

iso file size 460mb

Code:
Archiver    Mode      Packing Time min.sec        Packed Size
7z          Fast            5.00                   237mb
7z          Fastest         3.00                   255mb
Rar         Fast            To Slow                N/A
Rar         Fastest         1.36                   260mb
Differences
7z Fast -vs- Rar Fastest - 24mb
7z Fastest -vs- Rar Fastest - 5mb

I'm sorry to say that the ones I'm putting on will have to be in RAR format.

Although it takes a long to zip them up they do compress to smaller files than winzip so taking less time when uploading them from here

I actually prefer RAR - so sorry to all those that disagree

Set rar to Fastest compression mode and you should do fine with fastest compression time.

I sure it matters more to us all that you're sharing your files. Taking time out to upload vs the compressor used, we all thank you.

Both 7-Zip and WinRAR are okay. Just WinZip produces much bigger archives
Thanks for the tests exoticaga Like Dizzy said sometimes (depending on the files) WinRAR produces a bit smaller archive.
Thanks to all that uploaded stuff on Magix FTP It will be a sad day when the FTP is full

Did you download something before? If so just close your FTP client and try again in some minutes. It happened for me too when I just completed some downloads that I couldn't connect to Magix FTP. The maximum number of connections is 2 btw.
