Best way to store large quantities of text?

In Windows, I had the option to compress folder contents to save disk space. This works great on large folders of text, since the files will compress a great deal, I could store 160 gigs of text in about 20 gigs of physical disk.


I can't find an option like this anywhere. I can create a zip file, but a 20 gig zip file is more than a little ridiculous.


I thought about .dmg files, but I'm not sure if they're compressed, and I don't think they can resize on the fly to the exact data size anyway?


What is the best way to go about storing data like this?
