I have a GeoDatabse that has a raster catalog and many individual images. These file geodatabases run about 5-10GB. I need to trasnfer them to field offices. Is there a way I can compress them to a smaller size (winzip doesn't work) so I can try to send them over the network. My other option is loading portable hard drives and sending them to each office. Thanks
