    Hi Guys,

    My mac with SL is unable to compress a big 1GB folder... It just stays stuck at the end of the process with no activity anymore in the Activity Monitor.

    Can you please try to reproduce this ? Just pick a big 1GB folder, right click on it and "Compress"... and post if it's successful or not.

    Thanks !

    Works fine for me. Anything strange in the folder you're attempting to compress? Also, why not use an app instead of the built-in compression tools?

    Here's an app that should be able to fill all your de-/compression needs:
    The Unarchiver

    OK thank very much ! I really appreciate your help.

    So you are probably right there must be something strange in this folder, I will check.

    What app would you recommend as an alternative to the Finder ?

    Edit : oups you were faster than me THANKS again !
