How big is the files you want to compress? (total size of everything that is)

most people use .zip or .rar

Are you wanting to send them via email?

The best compression will be achieved with the 7zip format, supported by most major archivers, like PowerArchiver, Izarc, ZipZag, ExpressArchiver, ZipGenius, Comprexx, etc., or all by itself:

But even with this, the compression won't be dramatic with most files. You might consider splitting them into parts with something that is easy to put back together on the other end, like Gsplit:

Using WinRAR, it will automatically split them to any size you like.
