I don't know what kind of algorithm Windows uses to compress filesystems, but it just could be that your data can't be easily compressed (mp3s, compressed video etc.) You can try to pack the data into a .7z archive with 7-zip. It uses a quite efficient compression algorithm.

The common term for that is "color banding". It results from rounding off similar colors together when you reduce bit depth. As an analogy - imagine drawing a rainbow using a box of 100 crayons, and then trying to draw the same thing with a box of 12... you lose imagine the loss in smoothness and discrete colors that would result.

I realize this is a very old question, but the solution is very easy. You do not need a full win98 install to get the data off. You just need to get yourself a win98 EBD disk image. (Emergency Boot Disk) You will also need some kind of virtual machine setup, such as VMware, Qemu, or Bochs. First up-- In your virtual machine software of choice, create two ...

So, you have two options. First, I would encourage you to just load the mod_deflate module. Add the following line to your httpd.conf file. LoadModule deflate_module modules/mod_deflate.so Otherwise, there is an alternative - mod_gzip. It is a an external extension that you'll have to download the source code, compile, and load using a line in your ...
