Depends on the data. But overall I would have to go with winrar.

same here. I have tried winace, winzip and winrar, and it seems to be that winrar has a higher compression then the others and slightly* faster then the other two.

*depending on proccessor speeds and types can affect this, but winrar is the best in my opinion. Sorry for the "*" thing...had to do it atleast once!

Kinda redundant, but WinRAR seems to be the best...handles a helluva lot of formats. (even those troublesome tar.gz)
