    although you do it a little bit more space compressing isnt a good idea,it slows the hdd down

    your best bet would be just to anything lol
    even a 10 gig would be more then double what you have now!
    compressing usually isn't a great idea

    Youll run into major trouble if you compress(completely) the hard drive that your OS resides on..Its ok to compress partitions etc just make sure your OS isnt on it

    Can you say SSSSLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW, that is what will happen if you compress the hard drive. The reason it slows down, is every time you access a file, it has to uncompress it to use it and then it has to compress it again after it is done. NO do not do it.
