For 7zip
1)Add Mod folder(best) or contents to archive from context menu or manager
2)Select "Ultra" or "Maximum" in Compression level
2)Select "LZMA" or "LZMA2" in Compression method Spoiler   
3)Check the difference in "Compression Ratio". Less means better.

For Winrar

2)Select "Best" in Compression method and check the "Create Solid Archive"
(you cannot update your archive but it gives better compression)

WinRAR *one* of the best for compression. I use it to store large libraries between my office PC and dedicated server.
