Optimize disk space or performance
Windows 10 allows you to use the relatively unknown function Compact OS to compress system files. Depending on the application you use, you can make the system more streamlined or faster. We showed how to use Compact OS.
Since Windows XP, in addition to compressing the drives available through the NTFS file system, it also has other functions that save space since Windows 10. The compact OS known tool compresses the system files of Windows 10 itself and reduces the required hard disk space by up to several GB.
If the system hard drive is large enough and the PC is slow, you should use Windows 10 in an uncompressed state. With the compact SSD and powerful computing power, Windows 10 compression makes a lot of sense. During the first installation, the system administrator or installer will decide whether Windows 10 uses Compact OS compression. You can use Compact OS to easily activate or deactivate compression. Our instructions show you how.
Are you dissatisfied with the results or is the computer working slower than usual? Then, compression should be undone. To do this, follow the steps below.
To deactivate Compact OS compression, execute the command "compact / compactos: never".
Then unzip Windows 10, and the result is displayed on the command line.
Compact OS is not the only way to release the system's hard drive. If the space you have to mine exceeds 2 to 3 GB, moving the user folder from the Windows hard drive to another drive can alleviate the space issue.
