    It has been awhile since I tried a compressed hard drive on XP Pro and I cant remember the pro's and con's of doing this. Has anyone compressed their hard-drive and what was your experience from doing this?
    Did you have any problems installing or running programs?
    Can you still defrag a compressed drive??

    Thanks,
    Steve
