Compress? Encrypt?

What to do when? Let’s first understand what compression is. Compression of a file occurs when a program applies algorithms to the file to make it smaller or more compact.

Hence, we have the term compression. Think of it like taking all the air out of a plastic bag. The reason compression is applied to a file most typically is to assist in disk/drive management. This means we have more storage space.

There are many 3rd party programs out there to perform this function. We commonly refer to these compression programs as zipping.

We have one compression program built into Windows. It can also be used to compress a drive (if the drive is not FAT 32). A hard drive contains files, and when this program is properly applied, will compress those files for us as we save them as part of the file attributes.

The program built into Windows 9x is called Drive Space 3.
