Disk Compression

Disk compression shrinks the files and places it in a special volume on the hard disk.

Disk volume is a disk or an area of a disk which has a unique name and is treated as a hard disk.

Disk compression creates a compressed volume containing data that has been re coded to use storage space more efficiently.

Advantages :

Gain storage space without any additional hardware.

Under optimal circumstances, the hard disk capacity is doubled.

Disadvantages:

If the compressed files are no longer required, drive space should be sufficient to hold the uncompressed data.

File error in the compressed volume means the loss of all the data in that volume.
