Zip was my first thought - but I doubt that it'll cut a file in half.
Then there's a rar and a sit compression - but cutting in half is unrealistic.

I can show you how to Split in into two - Half sized files... that can be easily re-assembled.

To Zip - if you have Windows XP - right click on the file and choose "send to" > "compressed folder"
Why do you want to do this ???

Wow
Depends on what kind of file!!! Graphics files maybe!! I rar them and then zip up the RARS!! Sometimes depending on what format It will do it!!! BMP's etc, but JPEGS are already compressed so not much you can do!! Text files and doc's less than 20%

I guess you want this for uploading!!!

Can think of no other reason !!

Text and DOC files will usually go to 20% or more of the original.
