Saving & Compression Suggestion - Adobe Indesign Windows

I have a 40-page manual, with more than 15 pages of tif images. I have left the images linked to the InDesign doc, so that it wouldn't be too massive, but it seems that the InDesign doc and associated link folder is still to large and is taking up too much space on a shared server. Do you have any suggestions on how I might compress the pictures (links) while they are being stored? Thank you very much....

    You could try LZW compression on your TIFF files. If these are copies, and not originals, then crop and resample in Photoshop instead of InDesign.

    Have you tried using the Save As command to see if this helps reduce the file size at all?

    Package the project then ZIP it.

    Graffiti:
    I don't think that's appropriate to the problem as stated. The files need to be accessible, but just take up as little space on the server as possible.

    It is a very good idea if you are keeping the file for archiving, but do no plan to access it regularly. But better than that would be burning to CD, eithat as is or compressed as recommended by Graffiti. If doingthat, then include all fonts, linked images, master images, and embedded links (like TIFs or PSDs placed in Illustrator files).

    Storage is cheap. Get a new drive for that server.
