  1. OS Drive Compression


    Greetings, everyone.


    I am using an Aspire ES1-132, with a storage of 28.0 Gigabytes, and I am running short on storage space, and I could not relieve space from the laptop.

    I was told that I could compress my OS drive.

    I need to know if compressing my OS drive is a good idea.

    -Thank You in advance

    :)

  3. Files in C: drive automatically compressing?

    As you may already know, if this feature is on, every new folder/file you add starts off automatically compressed. If you would like to turn it off for the whole drive, kindly follow these steps:

    • Start File Explorer . In the left pane, right-click on the drive that you would not want to be compressed.
    • Click Properties.
    • Make sure that the Compress this drive to save disk space box is unchecked.
    • Click OK then Apply.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
