    Yes, the side-by-side directory sucks....space.

    It'd be nice to just move it to a platter drive.

    Code:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>compact /CompactOs:query
    The system is in the Compact state.  It will remain in this state unless an
    administrator changes it.

    That's why I've not stopped using a platter drive.

    I don´t understand what this thread is about. If Windows can "compact" the files when is "beneficial for the system", that seems good. Is anything wrong with it?

    Presumably the files can be slow to compress/decompress if the CPU isn't very fast, or if there isn't much RAM. That said, My Win10 installation is compressed and I haven't noticed any speed issues despite having both a slow-ish processor and not much RAM.
