If I can estimate the resulted .zip file size before compressing large folder?

If I know I will not save any space then I will not spend my time for zipping!

How can I estimate compressed folder size without compressing?

Thank you!

All I can tell you from experience is that if a folder caontains files that are already highly compressed. like .mpeg or .jpeg, they won't compress much. But if they contain text based files .txt, .html, they will compress very well.
