Compress contents to save disk space.

Jump to solution

Hi,

I ask question about EEPC v6.

KB72568 says following.

Does EEPC 5.x support compressed drives?
EEPC supports compressed drives only if the root directory (c:\) of the boot drive is not compressed.

Do you know EEPC can support compressed folder (C:\Program Files, C:\Windows, etc)?

Regards,

Yes. Just not the root.

It's a bad idea to compress the windows and program files folders though - it will really slow down your machine.

Agree with above.  If you'll notice, the folders that Microsoft creates as security update uninstall folders (hidden) in the Windows folder are compressed as part of the patching process.  So, with full disk encryption, you can compress files/folders.  Just don't have the drive itself (like mentioned above - the root) compressed before you try to encrypt the drive.  It will fail to start encrypting until it's uncompressed (the root that is).
