Compressed Files

Under Disk Clean Up,there is an item called "Compress old files",what are the benefits of doing so and does this action slow down a PC,and how does it work?

Cheers
Mick.

The idea behind compressing old files is to compress files that you haven't opened in a long time so that you free up a bit of disk space. There's no point compressing anything other than files you don't use much, as the overheads involved in uncompressing negate the saving in disk space.. Think of it as a way of archiving stuff you don't use much.

To be honest, I wouldn't bother, unless you're really low on disk space :p

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
