Compression Tip

When using Compression in your application, be sure to remember that
you can use compression at the folder level by specifying the
"CompressionType=Fast" command within the ##Attributes.ini in lieu of
using the global setting in the package.ini. You may decide that you
just need to compress certain folders that contain very large files
while leaving the remainder of the application uncompressed. This
technique can help you reduce the overall footprint without needing to
compress the entire application.
