Compressed Hardrive

  hiwatt 12:41 24 May 2007

I've noticed on my computer the "compress drive to save disc space" box is ticked.It's an 80gb hardrive with 32gb free space.If I untick the box,will it make much difference?Thanks.

Yes, you will run out of space.

Is it just a space issue?Will it affect the performance of my computer?It was like this when I bought it yet my girlfriends new computer has this box unticked.Should I just leave it as it is?Any help is appreciated.

hiwatt, hola

Yeah just space. I have a mixture of compressed and uncompressed across several drives [because of the requirements of a third party encryption device] and it makes no detectable difference to the performance.
