for compressor I recommend 7zip which is a free software and can be downloaded from the following link :

    I received your advice how to move the “old” VPS to the new VPS Server.
    Thank you !

    Frankly spoken, I am overstrained with your advice how to move my VPS
    to your new Server. I am a simple user and no IT-techie. So I beg you
    again to execute the transfer process for me. When I subscibed to your
    service in spring 2009 – a certain John, working in your firm, did the
    VSP-setup process perfectly for me – I am sure that he would effectuate
    the transfer without problems.

    Please let me know if you need additional infos or activities from my side to support your proceeds.

    Thanks a lot for your help

    Best regards
