Compression

With the programs in this category you'll be able to compress hundreds of minor files into one file easily.

You can even make the compressed file self-extracting, which means that the receiver of the file doesn't have to have compression-software, such as WinRAR installed to unpack it.

If you need to send files by mail it's also a very good idea to compress the files first. It not only makes the files faster to send and receive. It can also encrypt the files, preventing unauthorized access to the files. As a last advantage this decreases the chance of your mail being rejected by mail servers or being placed in spam-folders.
