I thank you for the infos and i'll try that repack and unpack thing.

I need to keep the pack file small, because if i have, like i do, 50 
Projects on my server and every small wordpress project has 2-3 Gigabyte 
disc space, my server runs out of space soon.

In the future i have to .gitignore my concept and gallery folders, but for 
the present projects, i need a way to "shrink the pack".
