    Compacting virtual hard disks

    We must have totally different working methods What is compact.exe :)

    Let's see what I told to be my workflow, and check how that works in reality. Example W10 x64 VM is one I have used for ESDtoISO and UUPtoISO testing, a clean installed build 15048 with no additional software installed, upgraded several times to builds 15055, 15058, 15060 and 15061, always restored back to clean 15048. This has of course caused the VHD size to grow to multiple times what really is needed.

    After the above, checking file sizes. Macrium image was made when the original 64 GB dynamically expanding VHD was 34.5 GB:

    Macrium image size just under 5 GB:


    What is compact.exe [​IMG]

    After restoring Macrium image to a new dynamically expanding VHD, file size is 9.3 GB. Over two thirds smaller than original one:


    What is compact.exe [​IMG]

    The same as seen by File Explorer, yellow highlight is the original VHD, start situation, and green highlight the new VHD where Macrium image from old VHD was restored. Old VHD can now be deleted, net storage save savings over 25 GB in this example case:


    What is compact.exe [​IMG]

    (Notice that VHD has already grown over 0.5 GB since the previous screenshot a few minutes earlier. This is because in previous screenshot VM was not started yet after restoring the image.)
    This of course is all logical, happens every time.

    What is compact.exe

    Microsoft .NET Compact Framework(Motorola i920 smartphone windows 2003 SE)

    I downloaded Microsoft .NET Compact Framework Sp2 onto my computer for my i920 smartphone second edition(windows) Now, step by step how do I get it onto my phone. I know how to use active sync but it seem as though it requires a certain way to drag and
    drop this particular file. My phone needs this in order for me to activate the pocket live TV exe.
