Some years ago I was working on download packages that featured a LOT of individual files from PDFs, DOCs, ZIP files, and more. These took up a huge amount of time, space, and bandwidth so I had a lot of reason to get deeply involved in FileOptimizer and really learn it's ins and outs. One thing that hasn't changed over the past few years is taking a really long time on some of the larger files, in this case 30 minutes compressing a 44 meg DOCX file.

I guess my question is whether or not this is really a problem. If you're running a program like FileOptimizer, it's not for a few kilobytes of additional data, but because you need to shrink it down and you want every resource to handle that.
