Something I do the first thing after installing and OS and reaching the desktop is to run an elevated command prompt and type:
fsutil behavior set disablecompression 1
that disables NTFS compression. The reason I do this ie because if I don't, after a few days have passed or sometimes immediately, when I go to the C:\Windows\System32 folder and the System32\drivers folder I would see a lot of files/ folders in blue meaning they are compressed.
Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that a horrible thing to do? when space is not an issue, why would I ever want to compress any file then it would have to be de-compresssed before being accessed and according to this logic, it means it would make the system less snappier
correct me if I'm wrong. what do you think of this tweak?
PS: The bigger issue if you buy a PC which already has Windows installed and this tweak wasn't applied, it is almost impossible to reverse the damage since that would mean you would have to take ownership of each file/folder one by one just in order for you to uncompress them, which ultimately may require you to format jut to get rid of this nuisance of compression
