As I said before it just may have contained a lot of repeating data..

Are you sure that there was only one 5mb file?? Because normally a release like that would be many files... RAR, r00, r01, etc.

What program was used to compress it??

What happens if you recompress it??

Also in future, just add to your original post, rather than starting a second one.

I've had a similar experience. I once downloaded a PS1 bootdisc off morpheus and when I decompressed it it create a 40Mb file and I was really surprised.

this is because of repeated files you were rite there is no way to compress any files that much without them being repeaters
