    Hi,

    Recently i've been out of diskpasce.
    So i buy a very needed new secondary harddrive.
    Unfortunately the window drive cleanup passed before me and compressed my c:/ drive.

    The reseult is very slow boot / login.
    I've set setting to uncompress it but some file are in use by window and i cant uncompress them. Unfortunately those are the very file i need to uncompress to gain speed in boot.

    I'd like to knwo if there is a utility to recursively uncompress a ntfs drive while being offline (recovery console ? )

    I've tried launching that from bartpe but i quite does not work.
    thank you.

    So you've installed a second harddrive and your old HD with windows on it got somehow compressed?
    I have the same set-up on one of my computers, but this never happened to this comp.
    Do you have many services and programs running at start-up?, this could be a reason for the slow booting.

    regards

    However there is quite come confusion regarding terms even in the article

    however it's quite some trouble to do it with file in use

    first i think only some files were compressed not ur (entire?) C drive.

    if the files are in use, have u tried uncompressing them in safe mode?

    f3x,

    What's the OS? The RC can do it but not recursively so to say (detail's upon reply).
