How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

Windows 10 has a new “CompactOS” feature designed for PCs with a very small amount of storage, like tablets or laptops with only 16GB of space. It’s like full-disk NTFS compression, but smarter. Here’s how it works.

This Replaces Windows 8.1’s WIMBoot

The “CompactOS” feature replaces the “Windows Image File Boot” (WIMBoot) feature Microsoft offered in Windows 8.1. WIMBoot allowed Windows to boot from a .wim image file, rather than extracting the system files onto a partition like normal. Windows keeps its system files stored in the compressed .wim image file and reads them from it.

This means Windows can fit on much smaller drives–with one downside. WIMBoot is probably a bit slower than using Windows normally, since Windows has to spend CPU cycles decompressing the files.

Windows 8.1’s WIMBoot could only be enabled by a PC manufacturer or system administrator when Windows was installed on a PC. You couldn’t enable it yourself afterwards. The new “CompactOS” feature in Windows 10, though, can be enabled or disabled on the fly with the Compact.exe command.

Windows 10 Normally Handles This for You, So You Probably Shouldn’t Use It

While you can enable or disable CompactOS yourself, you probably shouldn’t do this on most PCs. Windows automatically enables the CompactOS feature on computers where Windows thinks it’s a good idea, and unless you know what you’re doing, you should trust Windows with this decision.

Enabling CompactOS will compress specific Windows system files to free up space. If you have a 16GB tablet or a 32GB laptop and storage space is extremely tight, this might matter. On a normal PC with a decent solid state drive or respectable hard drive, you’re just slowing down your Windows operating system for no real advantage.

This is similar to enabling NTFS compression on your entire system drive, but is much more targeted. It doesn’t compress everything on your drive–just specific system files. Enabling the CompactOS feature should be better for performance than simply enabling drive-wide compression. However, performance will still probably a bit worse with CompactOS enabled than without it enabled.

That said, Windows 10 does let you manually enable or disable CompactOS. Perhaps you have a 64GB computer and you desperately need a few more gigabytes, or perhaps you don’t want the performance penalty of CompactOS on a computer with less storage. You now have the choice to enable or disable it without reinstalling Windows, unlike with WIMBoot in Windows 8.1.

How to Check, Enable, and Disable CompactOS

You can control the CompactOS feature with the Compact.exe command in a Command Prompt window with Administrator permissions.

First, you’ll need to open a Command Prompt window as administrator. Right-click the Start button or press Windows+X, then select “Command Prompt (Admin)” to open one.

How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

To check whether CompactOS is enabled on your computer, run the following command:

By default, you’ll see a message saying that Windows chose the state for your PC. If you enable or disable CompactOS manually, you’ll see a message saying that “it will remain in [the current] state unless an administrator changes it.”

To enable CompactOS, run the following command. The process of compacting your operating system files may take only a few minutes, or it may take 20 minutes or longer. It depends on the speed of your computer.

In the example below, enabling CompactOS freed up about 2.2 GB of space on our test PC.

To disable CompactOS, run the following command. Windows will take some time to disable it, too. How long this process takes depends on the speed of your computer.

Again, we don’t recommend most Windows users mess with this. Windows should handle it automatically, and will make the correct decisions for most PCs. But if you know you’re a special case, any Windows user can now override that decision. We’re happy to have the option.

  • I wanted to write this long time ago and forgot. And then I saw thread about Modern Warfare allocating 200GB space and remembered to write this down.

    We all know that consoles use compression algorithms while PC is not(usually)

    So Microsoft introduced new compression system with Windows 10 so it ships with a reworked compression system that, while fast and effective, is only exposed to users via a command-line tool — compact.exe

    This program will just expose it more and give you user-friendly User Interface to use Compact.

    Here are some examples of before and after:

    Here is my personal example:

    I saved 10gigs on Pillars of Eternity

    It doesn’t only compress games. It will handle literally every folder your choose. Without side effects. If your CPU is not like dunno, pentium or old as hecc i3

    My another personal example. Compressed work assets:

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    “, “Windows 10” turi naują “CompactOS” funkciją, skirtą kompiuteriams su labai mažu saugyklos kiekiu, pavyzdžiui, nešiojamieji kompiuteriai, kuriuose yra tik 16 GB vietos. Tai tarsi pilnas disko NTFS suspaudimas, bet protingesnis. Štai kaip tai veikia.

    Tai pakeičia Windows 8.1 “WIMBoot”

    SUSIJĘS: “WIMBoot Explained”: kaip “Windows” dabar gali įdėti į nedidelį 16 GB diską

    “CompactOS” funkcija pakeičia “Windows” Failų įkėlimas “(” WIMBoot “) funkcija” Microsoft “, siūlanti” Windows 8.1 “. “WIMBoot” leido “Windows” paleisti iš .wim vaizdo failo, o ne ištraukti sistemos failus į tokį kaip “normal” skirsnį. Windows saugo savo sistemos failus suspausto .wim vaizdo failo atmintyje ir nuskaito juos iš jo.

    Tai reiškia, kad “Windows” gali tilpti ant daug mažesnių diskų – su vienu trūkumu. “WIMBoot” tikriausiai yra šiek tiek lėtesnis nei naudojant “Windows” paprastai, nes “Windows” turi išleisti CPU ciklus, iškraunančius failus.

    “Windows 8.1” WIMBoot gali būti įgalintas tik kompiuterio gamintojui ar sistemos administratoriui, kai “Windows” buvo įdiegtas kompiuteryje. Po to negalėjote įjungti savęs. Naujoji “CompactOS” funkcija “Windows 10” gali būti įjungta arba išjungta “fly” naudojant komandą Compact.exe.

    “Windows 10” paprastai tvarko tai jums, taigi jūs tikriausiai neturėtumėte jo naudoti

    SUSIJĘS : Jei naudosite “Windows” visą diską, kad išsaugotumėte erdvę?

    Nors jūs galite įjungti arba išjungti CompactOS patys, tikriausiai neturėtumėte tai daryti daugelyje kompiuterių. “Windows” automatiškai įgalina “CompactOS” funkciją tame kompiuteryje, kuriame “Windows” mano, kad tai gera idėja, ir, nebent jūs žinote, ką darai, turėtumėte pasitikėti Windows šiuo sprendimu.

    Įjungus “CompactOS” suspaudus konkrečius “Windows” sistemos failus, kad būtų galima išlaisvinti vietos. Jei turite 16 GB planšetinį kompiuterį arba 32 GB nešiojamąjį kompiuterį, o atmintis yra labai maža, tai gali būti svarbu. Normalus kompiuteris su tinkamu kietojo disko ar garbingu kietu disku tiesiog sulėtina jūsų “Windows” operacinę sistemą be realaus pranašumo.

    Tai yra panašu į visą sistemos diske esantį NTFS suspaudimą, tačiau yra daug daugiau tikslinė. Neprispaustas viskas ant jūsų disko – tik tam tikri sistemos failai. “CompactOS” funkcijos įjungimas turėtų būti geresnis našumui nei paprasčiausiai leidžiant visišką suspaudimą. Tačiau, veikiant “CompactOS”, veikimas greičiausiai bus šiek tiek blogesnis, nei jis bus įjungtas.

    Tuo tarpu “Windows 10” leidžia jums rankiniu būdu įjungti arba išjungti CompactOS. Galbūt turėsite 64 GB kompiuterį, be to, jums nereikės keletos gigabaitų, o galbūt nenorite CompactOS našumo bausmės kompiuteryje, kuriame yra mažiau saugyklos. Skirtingai nuo “Windows 8.1” su “WIMBoot”, dabar galite pasirinkti įjungti arba išjungti šią funkciją, jei nenorite iš naujo įdiegti “Windows”.

    Kaip patikrinti, įjungti ir išjungti CompactOS

    “CompactOS” funkciją galite valdyti naudodami komandą Compact.exe Komandinės eilutės langas su Administratoriaus leidimais.

    Pirma, kaip administratorius turėsite atidaryti komandų eilutės langą. Dešiniuoju pelės mygtuku spustelėkite mygtuką Pradėti arba paspauskite “Windows + X”, tada atidarykite “Command Prompt (Admin)”.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Norėdami patikrinti, ar CompactOS jūsų kompiuteryje įjungtas, paleiskite šią komandą:

    Numatyta, kad pamatysite pranešimą, kad Windows pasirinko jūsų kompiuterio būseną. Jei įjungiate arba išjungiate “CompactOS” rankiniu būdu, pamatysite pranešimą, kuriame teigiama, kad “ji lieka [dabartinėje] būsenoje, nebent administratorius ją pakeis.”

    Norėdami įjungti CompactOS, paleiskite šią komandą. Operacinės sistemos failų suspaudimas gali užtrukti kelias minutes arba tai gali trukti 20 minučių ar ilgiau.

    Žemiau esančiame pavyzdyje, leidžianti CompactOS išbandyti mūsų bandomąjį kompiuterį apie 2,2 GB vietos.

    Norėdami išjungti CompactOS, paleiskite “CompactOS” tokia komanda Windows užtruks šiek tiek laiko ir jį išjungti. Kiek laiko šis procesas vyksta priklauso nuo jūsų kompiuterio greičio.

    Vėlgi, daugeliui Windows vartotojų nerekomenduojame. “Windows” turėtų tai tvarkyti automatiškai ir priims tinkamus sprendimus daugeliui kompiuterių. Bet jei žinote, kad esate ypatingas atvejis, bet kuris “Windows” naudotojas dabar gali pakeisti šį sprendimą. Džiaugiamės galėdami pasirinkti.

    Windows 10 ima novo funkcijo »CompactOS«, ki je zasnovana za računalnike z zelo majhno količino pomnilnika, kot so tablice ali prenosniki s samo 16 GB prostora. To je kot stiskanje s polnim diskom NTFS, vendar pametnejše. Tako deluje.

    To zamenja WIMBoot za Windows 8.1

    Funkcija »CompactOS« nadomešča funkcijo »Windows Image File Boot« (WIMBoot), ki jo Microsoft ponuja v sistemu Windows 8.1. WIMBoot je operacijskemu sistemu Windows omogočil zagon iz slikovne datoteke .wim, namesto da bi sistemske datoteke izločil na particijo, kot je običajno. Windows ohranja svoje sistemske datoteke shranjene v stisnjeni slikovni datoteki .wim in jih bere.

    To pomeni, da se lahko Windows prilega na veliko manjše pogone – z eno stranjo. WIMBoot je verjetno nekoliko počasnejši kot pri uporabi operacijskega sistema Windows, saj mora Windows porabiti CPU cikle za dekompresijo datotek.

    WIMBoot za Windows 8.1 lahko omogoči samo proizvajalec osebnega računalnika ali skrbnik sistema, ko je Windows nameščen na osebnem računalniku. Kasneje je ne morete omogočiti sami. Nova funkcija »CompactOS« v operacijskem sistemu Windows 10 pa je mogoče omogočiti ali onemogočiti s pomočjo ukaza Compact.exe.

    Windows 10 običajno obravnava to za vas, zato ga verjetno ne bi smeli uporabljati

    Medtem ko lahko CompactOS omogočite ali onemogočite, verjetno tega ne počnete na večini osebnih računalnikov. Windows samodejno omogoči funkcijo CompactOS v računalnikih, za katere Windows meni, da je dobra ideja, in če ne veste, kaj počnete, morate Windows zaupati tej odločitvi.

    Omogočanje CompactOS bo stisnilo določene sistemske datoteke Windows, da sprostite prostor. Če imate 16 GB tabličnega računalnika ali 32 GB prenosnega računalnika in je prostor za shranjevanje zelo tesen, je to lahko pomembno. Na običajnem računalniku z dobrim pogonom SSD ali uglednim trdim diskom le upočasnite operacijski sistem Windows brez resnične prednosti.

    To je podobno omogočanju stiskanja NTFS na celotnem sistemskem pogonu, vendar je veliko bolj ciljno usmerjeno. Ne stiska vsega na vašem disku – samo določene sistemske datoteke. Omogočanje funkcije CompactOS bi moralo biti boljše za zmogljivost kot preprosto omogočanje stiskanja v celotnem pogonu. Vendar pa bo zmogljivost še vedno verjetno nekoliko slabša, če je CompactOS omogočil, kot če ga ni omogočil.

    To pomeni, da vam Windows 10 omogoča ročno omogočanje ali onemogočanje CompactOS-a. Morda imate računalnik z zmogljivostjo 64 GB in nujno potrebujete še nekaj gigabajtov, ali pa morda ne želite, da bi CompactOS na računalniku z manj pomnilnika kaznoval uspešnost. Zdaj imate na voljo možnost, da jo omogočite ali onemogočite, ne da bi znova namestili sistem Windows, za razliko od programa WIMBoot v sistemu Windows 8.1.

    Kako preveriti, omogočiti in onemogočiti CompactOS

    Funkcijo CompactOS lahko nadzorujete z ukazom Compact.exe v oknu ukaznega poziva s skrbniškimi dovoljenji.

    Najprej morate odpreti okno ukaznega poziva kot skrbnik. Z desno tipko miške kliknite gumb Start ali pritisnite Windows + X, nato pa izberite »Ukazni poziv (Admin)«, da ga odprete.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Če želite preveriti, ali je CompactOS omogočen v računalniku, zaženite ta ukaz:

    Privzeto se prikaže sporočilo, da je Windows izbral stanje vašega računalnika. Če ročno omogočite ali onemogočite CompactOS, se prikaže sporočilo, da »bo ostalo v [trenutnem] stanju, razen če ga spremeni skrbnik.«

    Če želite omogočiti CompactOS, zaženite naslednji ukaz. Postopek stiskanja datotek operacijskega sistema lahko traja le nekaj minut ali pa traja 20 minut ali dlje. To je odvisno od hitrosti vašega računalnika.

    V spodnjem primeru je omogočanje CompactOS sprostilo približno 2, 2 GB prostora na našem testnem računalniku.

    Če želite onemogočiti CompactOS, zaženite naslednji ukaz. Windows ga bo tudi vzel za nekaj časa. Kako dolgo traja ta postopek, je odvisno od hitrosti vašega računalnika.

    Tudi tega ne priporočamo večini uporabnikov sistema Windows. Windows ga bo samodejno obdelal in sprejel pravilne odločitve za večino osebnih računalnikov. Toda če veste, da ste poseben primer, lahko vsak uporabnik operacijskega sistema Windows to odločitev preglasi. Veseli smo, da imamo možnost.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Windows 10 มีคุณสมบัติ“ CompactOS” ใหม่ที่ออกแบบมาสำหรับพีซีที่มีพื้นที่จัดเก็บจำนวนน้อยมากเช่นแท็บเล็ตหรือแล็ปท็อปที่มีพื้นที่เพียง 16GB มันเหมือนกับการบีบอัด NTFS แบบเต็มดิสก์ แต่ฉลาดกว่า นี่คือวิธีการทำงาน.

    สิ่งนี้แทนที่ WIMBoot ของ Windows 8.1

    คุณสมบัติ“ CompactOS” แทนที่คุณสมบัติ“ Windows Image File Boot” (WIMBoot) ที่ Microsoft มีให้ใน Windows 8.1 WIMBoot อนุญาตให้ Windows บูตจากไฟล์อิมเมจ. wim แทนการแตกไฟล์ระบบลงในพาร์ติชันเช่นปกติ Windows เก็บไฟล์ระบบไว้ในไฟล์อิมเมจ. wim ที่ถูกบีบอัดและอ่านจากไฟล์นั้น.

    ซึ่งหมายความว่า Windows สามารถติดตั้งไดรฟ์ขนาดเล็กลงได้มากโดยมีข้อเสียเพียงข้อเดียว WIMBoot อาจช้ากว่าการใช้ Windows ปกติเล็กน้อยเนื่องจาก Windows จะต้องใช้รอบ CPU ในการคลายการบีบอัดไฟล์.

    WIMBoot ของ Windows 8.1 สามารถเปิดใช้งานโดยผู้ผลิตพีซีหรือผู้ดูแลระบบเท่านั้นเมื่อติดตั้ง Windows บนพีซี คุณไม่สามารถเปิดใช้งานได้ด้วยตัวเองหลังจากนั้น อย่างไรก็ตามคุณสมบัติ“ CompactOS” ใหม่ใน Windows 10 สามารถเปิดใช้งานหรือปิดการใช้งานได้ทันทีด้วยคำสั่ง Compact.exe.

    โดยปกติ Windows 10 จะจัดการสิ่งนี้ให้คุณดังนั้นคุณอาจไม่ควรใช้มัน

    ในขณะที่คุณสามารถเปิดใช้งานหรือปิดการใช้งาน CompactOS ด้วยตัวคุณเองคุณอาจไม่ควรทำเช่นนี้กับพีซีส่วนใหญ่ Windows เปิดใช้งานคุณสมบัติ CompactOS โดยอัตโนมัติในคอมพิวเตอร์ที่ Windows คิดว่าเป็นความคิดที่ดีและหากคุณไม่ทราบว่าคุณกำลังทำอะไรอยู่คุณควรเชื่อถือ Windows ด้วยการตัดสินใจนี้.

    การเปิดใช้งาน CompactOS จะบีบอัดไฟล์ระบบ Windows เฉพาะเพื่อเพิ่มพื้นที่ว่าง หากคุณมีแท็บเล็ตขนาด 16GB หรือแล็ปท็อปขนาด 32GB และพื้นที่เก็บข้อมูลนั้นแน่นมาก บนพีซีทั่วไปที่มีไดรฟ์โซลิดสเตตที่ดีหรือฮาร์ดไดรฟ์ที่น่านับถือคุณเพียงชะลอระบบปฏิบัติการ Windows ของคุณโดยไม่มีข้อได้เปรียบที่แท้จริง.

    ซึ่งคล้ายกับการเปิดใช้งานการบีบอัด NTFS ในไดรฟ์ระบบทั้งหมดของคุณ แต่มีการกำหนดเป้าหมายมากขึ้น มันไม่บีบอัดทุกอย่างในไฟล์ระบบเฉพาะของไดรฟ์ การเปิดใช้งานฟีเจอร์ CompactOS น่าจะดีกว่าประสิทธิภาพมากกว่าการเปิดใช้งานการบีบอัดทั้งไดรฟ์ อย่างไรก็ตามประสิทธิภาพอาจยังแย่ลงเล็กน้อยเมื่อเปิดใช้งาน CompactOS มากกว่าที่ไม่ได้เปิดใช้งาน.

    ดังกล่าวว่า Windows 10 ช่วยให้คุณเปิดใช้งานหรือปิดการใช้งาน CompactOS ด้วยตนเอง บางทีคุณมีคอมพิวเตอร์ 64GB และคุณต้องการกิกะไบต์เพิ่มอีกสองสามหรือคุณอาจไม่ต้องการประสิทธิภาพของ CompactOS บนคอมพิวเตอร์ที่มีพื้นที่เก็บข้อมูลน้อยกว่า ตอนนี้คุณมีทางเลือกในการเปิดหรือปิดการใช้งานโดยไม่ต้องติดตั้ง Windows ใหม่ไม่เหมือนกับ WIMBoot ใน Windows 8.1.

    วิธีตรวจสอบเปิดใช้งานและปิดใช้งาน CompactOS

    คุณสามารถควบคุมคุณสมบัติ CompactOS ด้วยคำสั่ง Compact.exe ในหน้าต่างพรอมต์คำสั่งที่มีสิทธิ์ผู้ดูแลระบบ.

    ก่อนอื่นคุณจะต้องเปิดหน้าต่างพรอมต์คำสั่งในฐานะผู้ดูแลระบบ คลิกขวาที่ปุ่ม Start หรือกด Windows + X จากนั้นเลือก“ Command Prompt (Admin)” เพื่อเปิด.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    ในการตรวจสอบว่าเปิดใช้งาน CompactOS บนคอมพิวเตอร์ของคุณหรือไม่ให้รันคำสั่งต่อไปนี้:

    ตามค่าเริ่มต้นคุณจะเห็นข้อความแจ้งว่า Windows เลือกสถานะสำหรับพีซีของคุณ หากคุณเปิดใช้งานหรือปิดการใช้งาน CompactOS ด้วยตนเองคุณจะเห็นข้อความแจ้งว่า“ จะยังคงอยู่ในสถานะ [สถานะปัจจุบัน] เว้นแต่ผู้ดูแลระบบจะทำการเปลี่ยนแปลง”

    หากต้องการเปิดใช้งาน CompactOS ให้เรียกใช้คำสั่งต่อไปนี้ กระบวนการบีบอัดไฟล์ระบบปฏิบัติการของคุณอาจใช้เวลาเพียงไม่กี่นาทีหรืออาจใช้เวลา 20 นาทีหรือนานกว่านั้น ขึ้นอยู่กับความเร็วของคอมพิวเตอร์ของคุณ.

    ในตัวอย่างด้านล่างการเปิดใช้งาน CompactOS เพิ่มพื้นที่ว่างประมาณ 2.2 GB บนพีซีทดสอบของเรา.

    หากต้องการปิดใช้งาน CompactOS ให้เรียกใช้คำสั่งต่อไปนี้ Windows จะใช้เวลาสักครู่ในการปิดการใช้งานเช่นกัน กระบวนการนี้ใช้เวลานานเท่าใดขึ้นอยู่กับความเร็วของคอมพิวเตอร์ของคุณ.

    อีกครั้งเราไม่แนะนำให้ผู้ใช้ Windows ส่วนใหญ่ยุ่งกับเรื่องนี้ Windows ควรจัดการโดยอัตโนมัติและจะทำการตัดสินใจที่ถูกต้องสำหรับพีซีส่วนใหญ่ แต่ถ้าคุณรู้ว่าคุณเป็นกรณีพิเศษผู้ใช้ Windows ทุกคนสามารถแทนที่การตัดสินใจนั้นได้ เรายินดีที่จะมีตัวเลือก.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Windows 10 có một tính năng mới của Compact CompactOS được thiết kế cho PC với dung lượng lưu trữ rất nhỏ, như máy tính bảng hoặc máy tính xách tay chỉ có 16GB dung lượng. Nó giống như nén NTFS toàn đĩa, nhưng thông minh hơn. Đây là cách nó hoạt động.

    Điều này thay thế WIMBoot của Windows 8.1

    Tính năng của Compact CompactOS thay thế cho tính năng Khởi động hình ảnh Windows Windows (WIMBoot) của Microsoft cung cấp trong Windows 8.1. WIMBoot cho phép Windows khởi động từ tệp hình ảnh .wim, thay vì trích xuất các tệp hệ thống vào một phân vùng như bình thường. Windows giữ các tệp hệ thống của nó được lưu trữ trong tệp hình ảnh .wim được nén và đọc chúng từ nó.

    Điều này có nghĩa là Windows có thể phù hợp với các ổ đĩa nhỏ hơn nhiều – với một nhược điểm. WIMBoot có thể chậm hơn một chút so với sử dụng Windows thông thường, vì Windows phải dành chu kỳ CPU để giải nén các tệp.

    WIMBoot của Windows 8.1 chỉ có thể được kích hoạt bởi nhà sản xuất PC hoặc quản trị viên hệ thống khi Windows được cài đặt trên PC. Bạn không thể tự kích hoạt nó sau đó. Tuy nhiên, tính năng mới của Compact CompactOS trong Windows 10 có thể được bật hoặc tắt khi đang di chuyển bằng lệnh Compact.exe.

    Windows 10 thường xử lý việc này cho bạn, vì vậy có lẽ bạn không nên sử dụng nó

    Mặc dù bạn có thể tự bật hoặc tắt CompactOS, nhưng có lẽ bạn không nên làm điều này trên hầu hết các PC. Windows tự động kích hoạt tính năng CompactOS trên các máy tính mà Windows cho rằng đó là một ý tưởng hay và trừ khi bạn biết bạn đang làm gì, bạn nên tin tưởng Windows với quyết định này.

    Kích hoạt CompactOS sẽ nén các tệp hệ thống Windows cụ thể để giải phóng dung lượng. Nếu bạn có máy tính bảng 16 GB hoặc máy tính xách tay 32 GB và không gian lưu trữ cực kỳ chật hẹp, điều này có thể quan trọng. Trên một PC bình thường có ổ cứng thể rắn hoặc ổ cứng đáng nể, bạn chỉ làm chậm hệ điều hành Windows của mình mà không có lợi thế thực sự.

    Điều này tương tự như cho phép nén NTFS trên toàn bộ ổ đĩa hệ thống của bạn, nhưng được nhắm mục tiêu nhiều hơn. Nó không nén mọi thứ trên ổ đĩa của bạn – chỉ các tệp hệ thống cụ thể. Kích hoạt tính năng CompactOS sẽ tốt hơn cho hiệu suất thay vì chỉ cho phép nén toàn bộ ổ đĩa. Tuy nhiên, hiệu suất vẫn có thể kém hơn một chút khi bật CompactOS so với khi không bật.

    Điều đó nói rằng, Windows 10 cho phép bạn kích hoạt hoặc vô hiệu hóa thủ công CompactOS. Có lẽ bạn có một máy tính 64 GB và bạn rất cần thêm vài gigabyte hoặc có lẽ bạn không muốn hình phạt hiệu năng của CompactOS trên một máy tính có ít bộ nhớ hơn. Bây giờ bạn có thể chọn bật hoặc tắt nó mà không cần cài đặt lại Windows, không giống như với WIMBoot trong Windows 8.1.

    Cách kiểm tra, kích hoạt và vô hiệu hóa CompactOS

    Bạn có thể điều khiển tính năng CompactOS bằng lệnh Compact.exe trong cửa sổ Dấu nhắc Lệnh với quyền Quản trị viên.

    Trước tiên, bạn sẽ cần mở cửa sổ Dấu nhắc Lệnh với tư cách quản trị viên. Nhấp chuột phải vào nút Bắt đầu hoặc nhấn Windows + X, sau đó chọn Lệnh Command Prompt (Quản trị viên) để mở một.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Để kiểm tra xem CompactOS có được bật trên máy tính của bạn không, hãy chạy lệnh sau:

    Theo mặc định, bạn sẽ thấy một thông báo nói rằng Windows đã chọn trạng thái cho PC của bạn. Nếu bạn bật hoặc tắt CompactOS theo cách thủ công, bạn sẽ thấy một thông báo nói rằng, nó sẽ vẫn ở trạng thái [hiện tại] trừ khi quản trị viên thay đổi nó.

    Để kích hoạt CompactOS, hãy chạy lệnh sau. Quá trình nén các tệp hệ điều hành của bạn có thể chỉ mất vài phút hoặc có thể mất 20 phút hoặc lâu hơn. Nó phụ thuộc vào tốc độ của máy tính của bạn.

    Trong ví dụ dưới đây, cho phép CompactOS giải phóng khoảng 2,2 GB dung lượng trên PC thử nghiệm của chúng tôi.

    Để tắt CompactOS, hãy chạy lệnh sau. Windows cũng sẽ mất một thời gian để vô hiệu hóa nó. Quá trình này mất bao lâu tùy thuộc vào tốc độ của máy tính của bạn.

    Một lần nữa, chúng tôi không khuyến nghị hầu hết người dùng Windows gây rối với điều này. Windows sẽ tự động xử lý nó và sẽ đưa ra quyết định chính xác cho hầu hết các PC. Nhưng nếu bạn biết bạn là một trường hợp đặc biệt, bất kỳ người dùng Windows nào cũng có thể ghi đè quyết định đó. Chúng tôi rất vui khi có tùy chọn.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Microsoft once claimed the original 64 GB Surface Pro would have only 23 GB of usable free space — that’s more than half used for system files! But Windows now fits on 16 GB drives.

    These 16 GB devices even have room to spare. As part of Windows 8.1 Update, Microsoft rolled out a new feature that allows Windows to fit on drives with a very small amount of storage space.

    Why Windows 8 Needed So Much Space

    Older Windows 8 devices — like the Surface Pro — seemed to gobble space like crazy. While Microsoft originally announced the original 64 GB Surface Pro would have only 23 GB available, the device actually shipped with 30 GB available. Still, that’s a huge amount of storage space used for system files — more than half!

    When you or the computer manufacturer install Windows, Windows extracts gigabytes of system files to the system partition. It also creates a recovery partition that can be used to reinstall Windows using the Refresh or Reset features — that uses quite a few gigabytes, too. The WinSXS folder also grows as you install Windows updates, keeping copies of the old files Windows Update replaced. Microsoft has struggled to make Windows use less space.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Windows Image File Boot, aka WIMBoot

    Windows 8.1 Update introduced a new feature called “Windows Image File Boot,” also known as “WIMBoot.” Rather than using the traditional method of extracting Windows’ system files from an image file and placing them on the system partition, a Windows system installed with WIMBoot keeps the compressed .wim image files around. These .wim files are stored on a separate “images” partition, just like the Windows recovery image is stored on a separate partition on a typical Windows system.

    DISM (the Deployment Image Servicing and Management) tool creates “pointer” files on the standard Windows system partition, and these pointer files point to files inside the compressed .wim images. The computer boots normally and your typical C: system drive looks just like it normally would.

    However, in the background, those typical Windows system files aren’t actually stored on your system partition. They’re compressed on a .wim file on another partition, and Windows transparently loads them from the .wim file and decompresses them whenever it needs them. This saves a huge amount of space because the files can stay compressed. Here’s an image from Microsoft’s blog post on the subject that shows how the typical partitioning scheme looks:

    Isn’t This Slower?

    There’s obviously more overhead when the system has to decompress files from a compressed image before opening them. It’s a bit like using NTFS compression — it’s not a great idea to use in most cases, as it will often just slow things down. WIMBoot will typically be slower than a standard Windows install. You shouldn’t use BitLocker with WIMBoot, and Microsoft even says some antivirus and backup tools may be incompatible with it.

    WIMBoot can only function on solid-state drives (SSDs) and similar eMMC drives. It can’t be used on rotational drives or hybrid drives. As Microsoft puts it, “WIMBoot works by taking advantage of the capability of solid-state drives to access different areas of the hard drive quickly.”

    In some specific cases, WIMBoot might be even faster. Picture a very slow eMMC drive that reads files slowly in combination with a fast CPU that can decompress files quickly. It’s possible that WIMBoot would be faster — the eMMC drive can read the smaller compressed data and the CPU can decompress it faster than the slow eMMC drive could read a larger amount of uncompressed data. However, on systems with good solid-state drives with fast performance, WIMBoot will be slower.

    How Much Space Does WIMBoot Need?

    Here’s the biggest news yet: With WIMBoot, Windows can be installed to just 4 GB of space or so. In other words, manufacturers can make 16 GB Windows tablets or laptops and 12 GB of their space will be available for applications and user data. This is huge, and it lets Windows compete in the same space as cheap Android tablets and Chromebooks. Windows doesn’t need a much larger drive just to offer the same amount of free storage space to users.

    Combined with the free Windows 8.1 with Bing operating system, computer manufacturers can now offer much cheaper PCs — we may see the return of netbooks.

    How To Get WIMBoot

    WIMBoot is a feature intended for computer manufacturers who can install Windows with WIMBoot to save space on devices with small amounts of storage — 16 GB or 32 GB, typically. You’ll get a Windows system installed with WIMBoot when you buy one of these new “Windows 8.1 Update” PCs with a small amount of included storage.

    Microsoft does offer a guide to creating WIMBoot images, but it’s not intended for the average Windows geek. Besides, if you already have a Windows PC — even one with a small 64 GB of storage — you’re probably better off not using WIMBoot. Using WIMBoot will just slow down your PC, even if you go through the trouble of setting it up properly. Sure, you could theoretically get some additional space — but it probably isn’t worth the cost.

    The next time you see a 16 GB Windows device, don’t laugh — it might have been too small to fit a user’s file-s and applications in the past, but Windows now fits on such a drive with room to spare.

    Windows 10 hat eine neue “CompactOS” -Funktion für PCs mit sehr wenig Speicherplatz, wie Tablets oder Laptops mit nur 16 GB Speicherplatz. Es ist wie Full-Disk-NTFS-Komprimierung, aber klüger. Und so funktioniert es.

    Dies ersetzt Windows 8.1’s WIMBoot

    RELATED: WIMBoot erklärt: Wie Windows jetzt auf ein kleines 16 GB Laufwerk passen kann

    Die “CompactOS” -Funktion ersetzt das “Windows Image Datei Boot “(WIMBoot) Feature Microsoft in Windows 8.1 angeboten. WIMBoot erlaubte Windows, von einer .wim Bilddatei zu starten, anstatt die Systemdateien wie gewöhnlich auf eine Partition zu extrahieren. Windows behält seine Systemdateien in der komprimierten .wim-Image-Datei und liest sie daraus.

    Das heißt, Windows kann auf viel kleinere Laufwerke passen – mit einem Nachteil. WIMBoot ist wahrscheinlich ein wenig langsamer als normales Windows, da Windows CPU-Zyklen benötigt, um die Dateien zu dekomprimieren.

    WIMBoot von Windows 8.1 konnte nur von einem PC-Hersteller oder Systemadministrator aktiviert werden, wenn Windows auf einem PC installiert wurde. Sie konnten es danach nicht selbst aktivieren. Die neue “CompactOS” -Funktion in Windows 10 kann jedoch mit dem Befehl Compact.exe aktiviert oder deaktiviert werden.

    Windows 10 behandelt normalerweise das für Sie, also sollten Sie es wahrscheinlich nicht verwenden

    RELATED : Sollten Sie die Full-Drive-Komprimierung von Windows verwenden, um Platz zu sparen?

    Sie können CompactOS zwar selbst aktivieren oder deaktivieren, aber das sollten Sie auf den meisten PCs wahrscheinlich nicht tun. Windows aktiviert automatisch die CompactOS-Funktion auf Computern, auf denen Windows dies für eine gute Idee hält. Wenn Sie nicht genau wissen, was Sie tun, sollten Sie Windows bei dieser Entscheidung vertrauen.

    Durch das Aktivieren von CompactOS werden bestimmte Windows-Systemdateien komprimiert. Wenn Sie ein 16-GB-Tablet oder einen 32-GB-Laptop haben und der Speicherplatz extrem knapp ist, könnte das von Bedeutung sein. Auf einem normalen PC mit einem anständigen Solid-State-Laufwerk oder einer respektablen Festplatte verlangsamen Sie Ihr Windows-Betriebssystem nur um keinen wirklichen Vorteil.

    Dies ähnelt der Aktivierung der NTFS-Komprimierung auf Ihrem gesamten Systemlaufwerk, ist aber viel mehr gezielt. Es komprimiert nicht alles auf Ihrem Laufwerk – nur bestimmte Systemdateien. Die Aktivierung der CompactOS-Funktion sollte besser für die Leistung sein, als einfach die treiberweite Komprimierung zu ermöglichen. Allerdings ist die Leistung bei aktiviertem CompactOS wahrscheinlich noch etwas schlechter als ohne es aktiviert zu haben.

    Mit Windows 10 können Sie jedoch CompactOS manuell aktivieren oder deaktivieren. Vielleicht haben Sie einen 64-GB-Computer und Sie benötigen dringend ein paar weitere Gigabyte, oder vielleicht wollen Sie nicht die Leistungseinbußen von CompactOS auf einem Computer mit weniger Speicher. Sie haben nun die Möglichkeit, es zu aktivieren oder zu deaktivieren, ohne Windows neu zu installieren, anders als mit WIMBoot in Windows 8.1.

    So prüfen, aktivieren und deaktivieren Sie CompactOS

    Sie können die CompactOS-Funktion mit dem Befehl Compact.exe steuern Eingabeaufforderungsfenster mit Administratorrechten

    Zuerst müssen Sie ein Eingabeaufforderungsfenster als Administrator öffnen. Klicken Sie mit der rechten Maustaste auf die Schaltfläche Start, oder drücken Sie Windows + X, und wählen Sie dann “Eingabeaufforderung (Admin)”, um eine zu öffnen.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Um zu überprüfen, ob CompactOS auf Ihrem Computer aktiviert ist, führen Sie den folgenden Befehl aus:

    Standardmäßig wird eine Meldung angezeigt, dass Windows den Status für Ihren PC ausgewählt hat. Wenn Sie CompactOS manuell aktivieren oder deaktivieren, wird eine Meldung angezeigt, die besagt, dass “es im [aktuellen] Status verbleibt, es sei denn, ein Administrator ändert es.”

    Um CompactOS zu aktivieren, führen Sie den folgenden Befehl aus. Das Komprimieren Ihrer Betriebssystemdateien dauert möglicherweise nur wenige Minuten oder dauert 20 Minuten oder länger. Das hängt von der Geschwindigkeit Ihres Computers ab.

    Im folgenden Beispiel hat die Aktivierung von CompactOS auf unserem Test-PC etwa 2,2 GB Speicherplatz freigegeben.

    Um CompactOS zu deaktivieren, führen Sie die folgenden Befehl. Windows wird auch einige Zeit brauchen, um es zu deaktivieren. Wie lange dieser Prozess dauert, hängt von der Geschwindigkeit Ihres Computers ab.

    Auch hier empfehlen wir den meisten Windows-Benutzern nicht, sich damit zu messen. Windows sollte es automatisch behandeln und wird die richtigen Entscheidungen für die meisten PCs treffen. Aber wenn Sie wissen, dass Sie ein Sonderfall sind, kann jeder Windows-Benutzer diese Entscheidung jetzt überschreiben. Wir freuen uns über die Option.

    Windows 10 heeft een nieuwe “CompactOS” -functie voor pc’s met een zeer kleine opslag, zoals tablets of laptops met slechts 16 GB aan ruimte. Het is als full-disk NTFS-compressie, maar dan slimmer. Zo werkt het.

    Dit vervangt Windows 8.1’s WIMBoot

    RELATED: WIMBoot Explained: Hoe Windows nu kan worden aangepast op een Tiny 16 GB Drive

    De “CompactOS” -functie vervangt de “Windows Image File Boot “(WIMBoot) -functie Microsoft aangeboden in Windows 8.1. WIMBoot heeft Windows toegestaan ​​om op te starten vanaf een .wim-afbeeldingsbestand, in plaats van de systeembestanden uit te pakken op een partitie zoals normaal. Windows bewaart zijn systeembestanden opgeslagen in het gecomprimeerde .wim-afbeeldingsbestand en leest deze uit.

    Dit betekent dat Windows op veel kleinere schijven past – met één nadeel. WIMBoot is waarschijnlijk een beetje langzamer dan normaal Windows gebruiken, omdat Windows CPU-cycli moet gebruiken voor het decomprimeren van de bestanden.

    WIMBoot van Windows 8.1 kon alleen worden ingeschakeld door een pc-fabrikant of systeembeheerder toen Windows op een pc werd geïnstalleerd. Je kon het daarna niet zelf inschakelen. De nieuwe “CompactOS” -functie in Windows 10 kan echter direct worden in- of uitgeschakeld met de opdracht Compact.exe.

    Windows 10 verwerkt dit gewoonlijk voor u, dus u zou het waarschijnlijk niet moeten gebruiken

    GERELATEERD : Moet u Windows ‘Full-Drive Compression gebruiken om ruimte te besparen?

    Hoewel u CompactOS zelf kunt in- of uitschakelen, moet u dit waarschijnlijk niet doen op de meeste pc’s. Windows schakelt de functie CompactOS automatisch in op computers waarvan Windows vindt dat het een goed idee is. Tenzij u weet wat u doet, moet u Windows vertrouwen op deze beslissing. CompactOS comprimeren van specifieke Windows-systeembestanden om ruimte vrij te maken. Als u een 16 GB-tablet of een 32 GB-laptop hebt en de opslagruimte extreem krap is, kan dit van belang zijn. Op een normale pc met een degelijke SSD of respectabele harde schijf, vertraag je gewoon je Windows-besturingssysteem zonder echt voordeel.

    Dit is vergelijkbaar met het inschakelen van NTFS-compressie op je hele systeemschijf, maar is veel meer gericht. Het comprimeert niet alles op uw schijf, alleen specifieke systeembestanden. Het inschakelen van de CompactOS-functie zou beter moeten zijn voor de prestaties dan alleen compressie op schijf mogelijk maken. De prestaties zullen echter waarschijnlijk nog wel iets slechter zijn met CompactOS dan zonder dat het is ingeschakeld.

    Met Windows 10 kunt u CompactOS echter handmatig inschakelen of uitschakelen. Misschien heb je een 64 GB-computer en heb je dringend nog een paar gigabytes nodig, of misschien wil je de prestatievergoeding van CompactOS niet op een computer met minder opslagruimte. U hebt nu de keuze om het in of uit te schakelen zonder Windows opnieuw te installeren, in tegenstelling tot WIMBoot in Windows 8.1.

    controleren, inschakelen en uitschakelen U kunt de CompactOS-functie besturen met de opdracht Compact.exe in een Opdrachtpromptvenster met beheerdersrechten.

    Eerst moet u een opdrachtpromptvenster openen als beheerder. Klik met de rechtermuisknop op de knop Start of druk op Windows + X en selecteer vervolgens ‘Command Prompt (Admin)’ om er een te openen.

    Voer de volgende opdracht uit om te controleren of CompactOS is ingeschakeld op uw computer:

    Windows 10, yalnızca 16GB alan içeren tabletler veya dizüstü bilgisayarlar gibi çok az miktarda depolama alanına sahip bilgisayarlar için tasarlanmış yeni bir “CompactOS” özelliğine sahiptir. Tam disk NTFS sıkıştırma gibi, ama daha akıllı. İşte nasıl çalışıyor.

    Bu, Windows 8.1’in WIMBoot’un yerine geçer

    “CompactOS” özelliği, Windows 8.1’de sunulan “Windows Görüntü Dosyası Önyüklemesi” (WIMBoot) özelliğinin yerine geçer. WIMBoot, sistem dosyalarını normal gibi bir bölüme çıkarmak yerine Windows’un bir .wim görüntü dosyasından önyüklemesini sağladı. Windows, sistem dosyalarını sıkıştırılmış .wim görüntü dosyasında saklar ve bu dosyaları okur..

    Bu, Windows’un tek bir dezavantajı olan çok daha küçük sürücülere sığabileceği anlamına gelir. WIMBoot, normalde Windows kullanmaktan biraz daha yavaştır, çünkü Windows dosyaları açmak için CPU döngüleri harcamak zorundadır..

    Windows 8.1’in WIMBoot’u, yalnızca Windows bir PC’ye yüklendiğinde bir bilgisayar üreticisi veya sistem yöneticisi tarafından etkinleştirilebilir. Daha sonra kendin etkinleştiremezsin. Windows 10’daki yeni “CompactOS” özelliği, Compact.exe komutuyla anında etkinleştirilebilir veya devre dışı bırakılabilir.

    Windows 10 Normalde Bunu Sizin İçin Kullanır, Muhtemelen Kullanmamalısınız

    CompactOS’u kendiniz etkinleştirebilir veya devre dışı bırakabilirsiniz, ancak muhtemelen çoğu bilgisayarda bunu yapmamalısınız. Windows, Windows’un iyi bir fikir olduğunu düşündüğü bilgisayarlarda CompactOS özelliğini otomatik olarak etkinleştirir ve ne yaptığınızı bilmiyorsanız, bu kararla Windows’a güvenmelisiniz..

    CompactOS’u etkinleştirmek, belirli Windows sistem dosyalarını yer açmak için sıkıştıracaktır. 16GB’lık bir tabletiniz veya 32GB’lık bir dizüstü bilgisayarınız varsa ve depolama alanı aşırı sıkışıksa, bu önemli olabilir. İyi bir yarıiletken sürücüye veya saygın bir sabit sürücüye sahip normal bir bilgisayarda, Windows işletim sisteminizi gerçek bir avantaj olmadan yavaşlatıyorsunuz.

    Bu, tüm sistem sürücünüzde NTFS sıkıştırmasını etkinleştirmeye benzer, ancak daha hedeflidir. Sadece sürücüye özel sistem dosyalarınızdaki her şeyi sıkıştırmaz. CompactOS özelliğini etkinleştirmek, sürücü genelinde sıkıştırmayı etkinleştirmek yerine performans açısından daha iyi olmalıdır. Bununla birlikte, performans hala CompactOS etkinken etkin olmasa da biraz daha kötü.

    Bununla birlikte, Windows 10, CompactOS’u manuel olarak etkinleştirmenizi veya devre dışı bırakmanızı sağlar. Belki 64GB’lık bir bilgisayarınız var ve çaresizce birkaç gigabayt’a ihtiyacınız var veya belki de daha az depolama alanı olan bir bilgisayarda CompactOS’un performans cezasını istemiyorsunuz. Artık, Windows 8.1’deki WIMBoot’tan farklı olarak Windows’u yeniden yüklemeden etkinleştirme veya devre dışı bırakma seçeneğiniz var.

    CompactOS Nasıl Denetlenir, Etkinleştirilir ve Devre Dışı Bırakılır

    CompactOS özelliğini Compact.exe komutuyla Yönetici izinlerine sahip bir Komut İstemi penceresinde kontrol edebilirsiniz..

    Öncelikle, yönetici olarak bir Komut İstemi penceresi açmanız gerekir. Başlat düğmesine sağ tıklayın veya Windows + X tuşlarına basın, ardından bir tane açmak için “Komut İstemi (Yönetici)” seçin..

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    CompactOS’un bilgisayarınızda etkin olup olmadığını kontrol etmek için aşağıdaki komutu çalıştırın:

    Varsayılan olarak, Windows’un PC’nizin durumunu seçtiğini belirten bir mesaj göreceksiniz. CompactOS’u manuel olarak etkinleştirir veya devre dışı bırakırsanız, bir yönetici değiştirmediği sürece “[geçerli] durumda kalacağını” söyleyen bir mesaj görürsünüz.

    CompactOS’u etkinleştirmek için aşağıdaki komutu çalıştırın. İşletim sistemi dosyalarınızı sıkıştırma işlemi yalnızca birkaç dakika sürebilir veya 20 dakika veya daha uzun sürebilir. Bilgisayarınızın hızına bağlıdır.

    Aşağıdaki örnekte, CompactOS’un etkinleştirilmesi test PC’mizde yaklaşık 2,2 GB alan boşaltmıştır.

    CompactOS’u devre dışı bırakmak için aşağıdaki komutu çalıştırın. Windows’un da devre dışı bırakması biraz zaman alacak. Bu işlem ne kadar sürer bilgisayarınızın hızına bağlıdır.

    Yine, çoğu Windows kullanıcısının bununla uğraşmasını önermiyoruz. Windows bunu otomatik olarak ele almalı ve çoğu PC için doğru kararları vermelidir. Ancak, özel bir durum olduğunuzu biliyorsanız, herhangi bir Windows kullanıcısı bu kararı geçersiz kılabilir. Seçeneğe sahip olduğumuz için mutluyuz.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Windows 10 ha una nuova funzionalità “CompactOS” progettata per PC con una quantità minima di spazio di archiviazione, come tablet o laptop con solo 16 GB di spazio. È come una compressione NTFS full-disk, ma più intelligente. Ecco come funziona.

    Sostituisce WIMBoot di Windows 8.1

    La funzione “CompactOS” sostituisce la funzionalità “Windows File Image Boot” (WIMBoot) offerta da Microsoft in Windows 8.1. WIMBoot consentiva a Windows di avviarsi da un file di immagine .wim, invece di estrarre i file di sistema su una partizione come normale. Windows conserva i file di sistema memorizzati nel file di immagine .wim compresso e li legge da esso.

    Ciò significa che Windows può adattarsi a unità molto più piccole, con uno svantaggio. WIMBoot è probabilmente un po ‘più lento rispetto all’utilizzo normale di Windows, dal momento che Windows deve spendere la CPU per decomprimere i file.

    WIMBoot di Windows 8.1 può essere abilitato solo dal produttore del PC o dall’amministratore di sistema quando Windows è stato installato su un PC. Non è possibile abilitarlo da solo in seguito. La nuova funzione “CompactOS” in Windows 10, tuttavia, può essere abilitata o disabilitata al volo con il comando Compact.exe.

    Windows 10 normalmente gestisce questo per te, quindi probabilmente non dovresti usarlo

    Mentre è possibile abilitare o disabilitare CompactOS autonomamente, probabilmente non si dovrebbe farlo sulla maggior parte dei PC. Windows attiva automaticamente la funzionalità CompactOS su computer in cui Windows pensa che sia una buona idea e, a meno che tu non sappia cosa stai facendo, dovresti affidarti a Windows con questa decisione.

    L’attivazione di CompactOS comprimerà specifici file di sistema di Windows per liberare spazio. Se si dispone di un tablet da 16 GB o di un portatile da 32 GB e lo spazio di archiviazione è estremamente stretto, ciò potrebbe essere importante. Su un normale PC con una discreta unità a stato solido o disco rigido rispettabile, stai solo rallentando il tuo sistema operativo Windows senza alcun reale vantaggio.

    Questo è simile all’abilitazione della compressione NTFS sull’intera unità di sistema, ma è molto più mirato. Non comprime tutto sul tuo disco, solo file di sistema specifici. Abilitare la funzione CompactOS dovrebbe essere migliore per le prestazioni rispetto alla semplice attivazione della compressione a livello di unità. Tuttavia, le prestazioni saranno probabilmente un po ‘peggiori con CompactOS attivato che senza abilitato.

    Detto questo, Windows 10 ti consente di abilitare o disabilitare manualmente CompactOS. Forse hai un computer da 64 GB e hai un disperato bisogno di qualche altro gigabyte, o forse non vuoi la penalizzazione delle prestazioni di CompactOS su un computer con meno spazio di archiviazione. Ora hai la possibilità di abilitarlo o disabilitarlo senza reinstallare Windows, diversamente da WIMBoot in Windows 8.1.

    Come controllare, abilitare e disabilitare CompactOS

    È possibile controllare la funzionalità CompactOS con il comando Compact.exe in una finestra del prompt dei comandi con autorizzazioni di amministratore.

    Innanzitutto, devi aprire una finestra del prompt dei comandi come amministratore. Fare clic con il pulsante destro del mouse sul pulsante Start o premere Windows + X, quindi selezionare “Prompt dei comandi (Admin)” per aprirne uno.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Per verificare se CompactOS è abilitato sul tuo computer, esegui il seguente comando:

    Per impostazione predefinita, verrà visualizzato un messaggio che informa che Windows ha scelto lo stato per il tuo PC. Se abiliti o disabiliti il ​​CompactOS manualmente, vedrai un messaggio che dice “rimarrà nello stato [corrente] a meno che un amministratore non lo modifichi”.

    Per abilitare CompactOS, eseguire il seguente comando. Il processo di compattazione dei file del tuo sistema operativo può richiedere solo pochi minuti, o potrebbero essere necessari 20 minuti o più. Dipende dalla velocità del tuo computer.

    Nell’esempio seguente, l’attivazione di CompactOS ha liberato circa 2,2 GB di spazio sul nostro PC di test.

    Per disabilitare CompactOS, eseguire il seguente comando. Windows impiegherà del tempo per disabilitarlo. Quanto dura questo processo dipende dalla velocità del tuo computer.

    Ancora una volta, non raccomandiamo la maggior parte degli utenti di Windows a fare casini con questo. Windows dovrebbe gestirlo automaticamente e prenderà le decisioni corrette per la maggior parte dei PC. Ma se sai che sei un caso speciale, qualsiasi utente di Windows può ora ignorare quella decisione. Siamo felici di avere l’opzione.

    Sometimes you need to look beyond the basic tips to free up more storage space.

    There are a few things in life you can never have enough of. Time and money might be the first two that come to mind, but there are times when storage space on your computer could be a close third. When you unexpectedly run out of space—just as you’re trying to install a large game or download a high-res movie—your first instinct is probably to go straight for the tried-and-true methods: You empty the Recycle Bin, you use Window’s built-in storage management tool to find and delete large apps and games, and you even delete temporary files using Storage Sense . But sometimes, that still isn’t enough.

    When you need even more wiggle room, there are a few more things you can do to free up space from the hidden corners of Windows. And there are some settings changes you can make now to free up more storage going forward.

    Use the legacy Disk Cleanup tool

    Use the legacy Disk Cleanup tool

    Storage Sense is well and good, but the old Disk Cleanup tool in Windows 10 and Windows 11 is a lot more useful. You can use it to quickly clean up multiple types of files and data together.

    Go to Start > Disk Cleanup > Clean up system files. Here, you will see a long list of data that can be deleted. This tool can help you delete Windows Update files, noncritical files for Windows Defender, upgrade log files, downloaded program files, temporary internet files, system error files, previous windows installations, and a lot more.

    Most of this data is safe to delete—except for the “Windows ESD installation files” data. This data is used to reset your PC to its factory settings. If you remove this data (and it’s OK to do so), you’ll need to use external installation media to reset your PC if you ever need to.

    Delete OneDrive data you don’t need

    Delete OneDrive data you don’t need

    If you use Microsoft 365 with its generous 1TB storage plan, you might have a lot of files stored in OneDrive, and also on your PC—but you might not need all those files on your PC, all the time. You can open File Explorer > OneDrive, identify the files you don’t need, and delete them from local storage to free up space.

    OneDrive also has a feature called Files On-Demand—once enabled, it will only download files when you open them. Otherwise, it will keep your local storage free. To enable this, click the OneDrive icon from the taskbar, go to Help & Settings > Settings > Save space and download files as you use them. Now OneDrive won’t store all data locally, but you can still do so when you want. Simply right-click a file or a folder you want to save locally and choose the “Always keep on this device” option.

    If your Windows device is running low on storage, here are a few ways to free up some drive space.

    Delete files with Storage sense

    Turn on Storage sense to have Windows delete unnecessary files automatically.

    Delete files manually

    Select Start > Settings > System > Storage > Cleanup recommendations. Open Storage settings.

    Select the temporary files, unused files, files synced to the cloud, and unused apps you want to remove. Then select Clean up.

    Move files to another drive

    Connect your removable media to your device.

    Open File Explorer from the taskbar and find the files you want to move.

    Select the files, then select Cut on the ribbon.

    Navigate to the location of the removable media, then select Paste.

    Delete files with Storage sense

    Open the Start menu and select Settings > System > Storage. Open Storage settings.

    Turn on Storage sense to have Windows delete unnecessary files automatically.

    To delete unnecessary files manually, select Change how we free up space automatically. Under Free up space now, select Clean now.

    Uninstall apps you don’t use anymore

    Open the Start menu and select Settings > Apps > Apps & features. Open Apps & features settings.

    Search for a specific app or sort them by size to see which ones are taking up the most space.

    When you find an app you want to delete, select it from the list, and then select Uninstall.

    Move files to another drive

    Connect your removable media to your device.

    Open File Explorer from the taskbar and find the files you want to move.

    Select the files, go to the Home tab, and then select Move to > Choose location.

    Select your removable media from the location list, and then select Move.

WIMBoot tillot Windows å starte opp fra en .wim-bildefil, i stedet for å utvinne systemfilene på en partisjon som vanlig. Windows beholder systemfilene lagret i den komprimerte .wim-bildefilen og leser dem fra den.

    Dette betyr at Windows kan passe på mye mindre stasjoner – med en ulempe. WIMBoot er trolig litt tregere enn å bruke Windows normalt, siden Windows må bruke CPU-sykluser, dekomprimerer filene.

    Windows 8.1s WIMBoot kan bare aktiveres av en PC-produsent eller systemadministrator når Windows ble installert på en PC. Du kunne ikke aktivere det selv etterpå. Den nye “CompactOS” -funksjonen i Windows 10 kan imidlertid være aktivert eller deaktivert på fluen med kommandoen Compact.exe.

    Windows 10 håndterer normalt dette for deg, så du bør ikke bruke det.

    RELATERTE :

    Skal du bruke Windows komprimering på fulldisk for å spare plass? Selv om du kan aktivere eller deaktivere CompactOS selv, bør du sannsynligvis ikke gjøre dette på de fleste PCer. Windows aktiverer automatisk CompactOS-funksjonen på datamaskiner hvor Windows mener det er en god ide, og med mindre du vet hva du gjør, bør du stole på Windows med denne beslutningen.

    Aktivering av CompactOS vil komprimere bestemte Windows-systemfiler for å frigjøre plass. Hvis du har en 16 GB-nettbrett eller en 32 GB bærbar datamaskin, og lagringsplassen er ekstremt tett, kan det hende det er viktig. På en vanlig PC med en anstendig solid state-stasjon eller en respektabel harddisk, setter du bare ned Windows-operativsystemet uten noen reell fordel.

    Dette ligner på at NTFS-komprimering kan brukes på hele systemstasjonen, men er mye mer målrettet. Det komprimerer ikke alt på disken din, bare bestemte systemfiler. Aktivering av CompactOS-funksjonen bør være bedre for ytelse enn bare å muliggjøre komplett kjøring. Men ytelsen vil fortsatt sannsynligvis være litt verre med CompactOS aktivert enn uten at den er aktivert.

    Når det er sagt, lar Windows 10 deg manuelt aktivere eller deaktivere CompactOS. Kanskje du har en 64 GB-datamaskin, og du trenger desperat noen få gigabyte, eller kanskje du ikke vil ha prestasjonsstraff på CompactOS på en datamaskin med mindre lagringsplass. Du har nå mulighet til å aktivere eller deaktivere den uten å installere Windows, i motsetning til WIMBoot i Windows 8.1.

    Slik kontrollerer, aktiverer og deaktiverer CompactOS

    Du kan styre CompactOS-funksjonen med kommandoen Compact.exe i en Kommandopromptvindu med administratorrettigheter.

    Først må du åpne et kommandopromptvindu som administrator. Høyreklikk Start-knappen eller trykk på Windows + X, og velg deretter “Kommandoprompt (Admin)” for å åpne en.

    For å sjekke om CompactOS er aktivert på datamaskinen, kjør følgende kommando:

    Compact.exe / CompactOS: spørring

    For å aktivere CompactOS, kjør følgende kommando. Prosessen med å komprimere operativsystemfiler kan ta bare noen få minutter, eller det kan ta 20 minutter eller lenger. Det avhenger av datamaskinens hastighet.

    Compact.exe / CompactOS: alltid

    For å deaktivere CompactOS, kjør Følgende kommando. Windows vil ta litt tid å deaktivere det også. Hvor lenge denne prosessen tar, avhenger av hastigheten på datamaskinen din.

    Compact.exe / CompactOS: aldri

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    A Windows 10-nek van egy új „CompactOS” szolgáltatása, amely nagyon kis tárolási kapacitású PC-k számára készült, mint például a tabletták vagy laptopok, amelyeknek csak 16 GB-os hely van. Olyan, mint a teljes lemez NTFS tömörítése, de okosabb. Így működik.

    Ez helyettesíti a Windows 8.1 WIMBoot-ját

    A „CompactOS” funkció helyettesíti a „Windows Image File Boot” (WIMBoot) funkciót, amelyet a Microsoft a Windows 8.1-ben kínál. A WIMBoot lehetővé tette a Windows számára, hogy a .wim képfájlból indítsa el a rendszert, ahelyett, hogy a rendszerfájlokat egy normál partícióra bocsátotta volna. A Windows rendszerfájlokat tárolja a tömörített .wim képfájlban, és elolvassa azokat.

    Ez azt jelenti, hogy a Windows sokkal kisebb meghajtókra illeszkedik – az egyik hátránya. A WIMBoot valószínűleg egy kicsit lassabb, mint a Windows normál használata, mivel a Windows-nak CPU-ciklusokat kell töltenie a fájlok kicsomagolására.

    A Windows 8.1-es WIMBoot-ját csak a számítógép gyártója vagy rendszergazdája engedélyezheti, amikor a Windows számítógépre telepítve lett. Ezt követően nem engedélyezheti magát. A Windows 10 új „CompactOS” funkciója azonban engedélyezhető vagy letiltható a Compact.exe paranccsal.

    A Windows 10 rendesen kezeli ezt az Ön számára, így valószínűleg nem használhatja

    Miközben engedélyezheti vagy letilthatja a CompactOS-t, valószínűleg nem kell ezt a legtöbb PC-n elvégezni. A Windows automatikusan engedélyezi a CompactOS funkciót olyan számítógépeken, ahol a Windows úgy gondolja, hogy ez jó ötlet, és ha nem tudja, hogy mit csinál, akkor bízza a Windows-t ezzel a döntéssel.

    A CompactOS engedélyezése lehetővé teszi a Windows rendszerfájlok tömörítését a hely felszabadításához. Ha 16 GB-os táblagépe van, vagy 32 GB-os laptopja van, és a tárhely nagyon szűk, akkor ez számíthat. Egy normál PC-n, amely tisztességes szilárdtest-meghajtóval vagy tisztességes merevlemezzel rendelkezik, csak lassítja a Windows operációs rendszerét, ha nincs igazi előnye.

    Ez hasonló az NTFS tömörítésének engedélyezéséhez az egész rendszer meghajtón, de sokkal célzottabb. Nem tömörít mindent a meghajtón – csak egy adott rendszerfájlon. A CompactOS funkció engedélyezésének jobbnak kell lennie a teljesítménynél, mint egyszerűen a meghajtó-széles tömörítés lehetővé tétele. Azonban a teljesítmény valószínűleg egy kicsit rosszabb lesz, ha a CompactOS engedélyezve van, mint a nélkül.

    Ez azt jelenti, hogy a Windows 10 lehetővé teszi a CompactOS kézi engedélyezését vagy letiltását. Talán van egy 64 GB-os számítógép, és kétségbeesetten szüksége van még néhány gigabájtra, vagy talán nem akarja a CompactOS teljesítménybüntetését egy kisebb tárolóval rendelkező számítógépen. Mostantól lehetősége van engedélyezni vagy letiltani a Windows újratelepítése nélkül, ellentétben a Windows 8.1-es WIMBoot programjával.

    A CompactOS ellenőrzése, engedélyezése és letiltása

    A CompactOS funkciót a Compact.exe paranccsal lehet kezelni a Parancssor ablakban a Rendszergazdai jogosultságokkal.

    Először egy parancssorablakot kell megnyitnia rendszergazdaként. Kattintson a jobb gombbal a Start gombra, vagy nyomja meg a Windows + X billentyűt, majd válassza ki a „Parancssor (Admin)” lehetőséget.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Annak ellenőrzéséhez, hogy a CompactOS engedélyezve van-e a számítógépen, futtassa a következő parancsot:

    Alapértelmezés szerint megjelenik egy üzenet, amely szerint a Windows választotta a számítógép állapotát. Ha engedélyezi vagy letiltja a CompactOS-t manuálisan, megjelenik egy üzenet, amely azt mondja, hogy „az [aktuális] állapotban marad, kivéve, ha a rendszergazda módosítja azt.”

    A CompactOS engedélyezéséhez futtassa a következő parancsot. Az operációs rendszerfájlok tömörítése csak néhány percet vehet igénybe, vagy akár 20 percig is eltarthat. Ez a számítógép sebességétől függ.

    Az alábbi példában a CompactOS kb.

    A CompactOS letiltásához futtassa a következő parancsot. A Windows is eltart egy ideig, hogy letiltja azt. Mennyi ideig tart ez a folyamat a számítógép sebességétől függ.

    Ismét nem javasoljuk, hogy a legtöbb Windows-felhasználó ne érjen hozzá. A Windows-nak automatikusan kell kezelnie, és a legtöbb PC-re meghozza a helyes döntéseket. De ha tudod, hogy különleges eset, bármely Windows felhasználó felülbírálhatja ezt a döntést. Örülünk, hogy rendelkezünk a lehetőséggel.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    يحتوي Windows 10 على ميزة “CompactOS” جديدة مصممة لأجهزة الكمبيوتر مع سعة تخزينية صغيرة جدًا ، مثل الأجهزة اللوحية أو أجهزة الكمبيوتر المحمولة مع مساحة تبلغ 16 غيغابايت فقط. انها مثل ضغط NTFS كامل القرص ، ولكن أكثر ذكاء. وإليك كيف يعمل.

    هذا يستبدل WIMBoot ويندوز 8.1

    تستبدل ميزة “CompactOS” ميزة “Windows File File Boot” (WIMBoot) المقدمة من Microsoft في Windows 8.1. سمح WIMBoot لـ Windows بالتمهيد من ملف صورة .wim ، بدلاً من استخراج ملفات النظام إلى قسم مثل عادي. يحتفظ Windows ملفات النظام المخزنة في ملف الصورة .wim المضغوطة ويقرأها منه.

    هذا يعني أن Windows يمكن احتوائه على محركات أقراص أصغر بكثير – مع جانب واحد. ربما يكون WIMBoot أبطأ قليلاً من استخدام Windows بشكل طبيعي ، حيث أن Windows يضطر لفصل دورات CPU ضغط الملفات.

    يمكن تمكين WIMBoot لنظام Windows 8.1 بواسطة الشركة المصنعة للكمبيوتر الشخصي أو مسؤول النظام عند تثبيت Windows على جهاز كمبيوتر. لا يمكنك تمكينها بنفسك بعد ذلك. ميزة “CompactOS” الجديدة في Windows 10 ، على الرغم من ذلك ، يمكن تمكينها أو تعطيلها على الطاير باستخدام الأمر Compact.exe.

    ويندوز 10 يعالج هذا عادة بالنسبة لك ، لذلك ربما لا ينبغي استخدامه

    في حين يمكنك تمكين أو تعطيل CompactOS بنفسك ، ربما لا ينبغي عليك القيام بذلك على معظم أجهزة الكمبيوتر الشخصية. يقوم Windows تلقائيًا بتمكين ميزة CompactOS على أجهزة الكمبيوتر حيث يعتقد Windows أنها فكرة جيدة ، وما لم تكن تعرف ما تفعله ، يجب أن تثق بـ Windows مع هذا القرار.

    يؤدي ضغط CompactOS إلى ضغط ملفات نظام Windows محددة لتحرير مساحة. إذا كان لديك جهاز لوحي بسعة 16 جيجا بايت أو كمبيوتر محمول سعة 32 جيجا ومساحة تخزين ضيقة للغاية ، فقد يكون ذلك أمرا مهما. على جهاز الكمبيوتر العادي باستخدام محرك أقراص صلبة أو محرك أقراص صلبة محترم ، فإنك تقوم بإبطاء نظام التشغيل Windows الخاص بك دون أي ميزة حقيقية.

    هذا مشابه لتمكين ضغط NTFS على محرك أقراص النظام بأكمله ، ولكنه أكثر استهدافًا. لا يقوم بضغط كل شيء على محرك الأقراص – فقط ملفات نظام محددة. يجب أن يكون تمكين ميزة CompactOS أفضل للأداء من مجرد تمكين الضغط على نطاق المحرك. ومع ذلك ، سيظل الأداء أسوأ من ذلك مع تمكين CompactOS من دون تمكينه.

    ومع ذلك ، فإن Windows 10 يتيح لك تمكين أو تعطيل CompactOS يدوياً. ربما لديك جهاز كمبيوتر 64 جيجابايت وكنت بحاجة ماسة إلى بضعة غيغابايت أكثر ، أو ربما لا ترغب في تنفيذ عقوبة CompactOS على جهاز كمبيوتر مع مساحة تخزين أقل. لديك الآن خيار تمكين أو تعطيله دون إعادة تثبيت Windows ، بعكس WIMBoot في Windows 8.1.

    كيفية التحقق من وتمكين وتعطيل CompactOS

    يمكنك التحكم في ميزة CompactOS باستخدام الأمر Compact.exe في إطار موجه الأوامر باستخدام أذونات المسؤول.

    أولاً ، ستحتاج إلى فتح نافذة “موجه الأوامر” كمسؤول. انقر بزر الماوس الأيمن فوق الزر ابدأ أو اضغط على Windows + X ، ثم حدد “موجه الأوامر (المسؤول)” لفتح أحدها.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    للتحقق مما إذا تم تمكين CompactOS على جهاز الكمبيوتر الخاص بك ، قم بتشغيل الأمر التالي:

    بشكل افتراضي ، سترى رسالة تفيد بأن Windows اختار الحالة لجهاز الكمبيوتر الخاص بك. إذا قمت بتمكين أو تعطيل CompactOS يدوياً ، فستظهر لك رسالة تقول “ستبقى في حالة [الحالية] ما لم يقوم المسؤول بتغييرها.”

    لتمكين CompactOS ، قم بتشغيل الأمر التالي. قد تستغرق عملية ضغط ملفات نظام التشغيل بضع دقائق فقط ، أو قد تستغرق 20 دقيقة أو أكثر. ذلك يعتمد على سرعة جهاز الكمبيوتر الخاص بك.

    في المثال أدناه ، تمكّن تمكين CompactOS من الوصول إلى 2.2 غيغابايت من المساحة على جهاز الكمبيوتر التجريبي.

    لتعطيل CompactOS ، قم بتشغيل الأمر التالي. سيستغرق Windows بعض الوقت لتعطيله أيضًا. يعتمد طول مدة هذه العملية على سرعة الكمبيوتر.

    مرة أخرى ، لا نوصي بمعظم مستخدمي Windows الفوضى مع هذا. يجب على Windows التعامل معه تلقائيًا ، وسيقوم باتخاذ القرارات الصحيحة لمعظم أجهزة الكمبيوتر الشخصية. ولكن إذا كنت تعرف أنك حالة خاصة ، يمكن لأي مستخدم لـ Windows تجاوز هذا القرار الآن. نحن سعداء بالحصول على هذا الخيار.

    With Spring only a few days away, it’s a good time to clean up drive space. If you’re running Windows 10, here’s our guide to freeing up drive space.

    With Spring only a few days away, it’s a good time to think about cleaning up your Windows computer. If you’re running Windows 10 and running low on space, here’s a look at some ways you can reclaim it.

    Delete Old Windows Installs

    If you upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 on an older PC and your hard drive is nearly full, you can reclaim gigabytes of space by deleting the Windows.old folder. Just remember, if you do upgrade to Windows 10, you have 30 days to roll back to the previous version. So, if that is a concern, make sure not to be too hasty in getting rid of it.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Delete Apps You No Longer Need

    All of us are guilty of this on our mobile devices; we download apps, use them a few times, and forget about them. The same happens with your PC. Getting rid of the apps you never use can clear up some additional space.

    In Windows 10, you can uninstall traditional desktop programs and Windows Store apps using. To do so, head to Settings > System > Apps & Features. The nice thing with Windows 10 is it lists the apps in alphabetical order and shows their size.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Click on each of the apps you no longer use and then select Uninstall and confirm. If it’s a Windows Store app, it will uninstall just like on your mobile device. However, traditional desktop apps will still take you through the uninstall wizard.

    It’s also worth noting that you can uninstall the Windows 10 apps that came preinstalled like the Weather or Sports apps. However, not all of them will leave willingly. Take the Mail and Calendar app as an example. It’s pretty well baked into Windows 10, but you can use a utility like CCleaner to get rid of them.

    Clean Up File History Versions

    Note: This one is aimed at your external drive and not local disk, but still worth reviewing.

    File History is a built-in tool introduced in Windows 8 and it allows you to recover files you might have accidentally deleted, or restore a modified document to an earlier version. It’s essentially like Apple’s Time Machine in OS X but for Windows. You might not know you had it, and for more read our article on how to up File History.

    If you do have it turned on and running out of external storage space, you can clean up old versions. While you can manage File History a bit in the Settings app, going to the traditional Control Panel is your best bet.

    Hit Windows Key + X on your keyboard to bring up the hidden power user menu and select Control Panel > File History > Advanced Settings.

    From there click the Clean up versions link. Then you can choose how far back you want to delete the versions. You can delete files up to two years old or everything but the most recent.

    Delete Old Restore Points

    This tip is not new to Windows 10. In fact, you could do this back in XP, but it’s still valid and worth a look. If you have enabled System Restore in Windows 10, you might want to delete a few of the earlier points to gain drive space.

    More on Reclaiming Drive Space in Windows 10

    Here’s a look at some other options you have when it comes to freeing up disk space:

    • While most of us are familiar using Disk Cleanup and Programs and Features to remove apps and free up space, Microsoft is eventually going to get rid of those legacy features instead of the Settings App. For more, read: How to Use the Windows 10 Settings App to Free Up Disk Space.
    • We covered how to reclaim a huge chunk of space in the first tip about removing Windows.old, but keep in mind that after a major update, disk space will be available to free up. For example, check out how to reclaim over 20 GB of drive space after the Windows 10 November Update.
    • There are also some decent third-party tools out there that will help assist in cleaning up drive space. For more check out our article on free utilities that help reclaim drive space on Windows.
    • A good way to not even run into an issue with running out of disk space is to store more of your data in the cloud using services like OneDrive, Dropbox, and Google Drive. Not only does that allow you to have more open storage on your local disks, but you can also access your files from anywhere you have an Internet connection.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Windows 10 verfügt über eine neue “CompactOS” -Funktion für PCs mit sehr wenig Speicherplatz wie Tablets oder Laptops mit nur 16 GB Speicherplatz. Es ist wie eine vollständige NTFS-Komprimierung, aber intelligenter. So funktioniert das.

    Dies ersetzt WIMBoot von Windows 8.1

    Die Funktion „CompactOS“ ersetzt die von Windows 8.1 angebotene Funktion „Windows Image File Boot“ (WIMBoot). WIMBoot erlaubte Windows, von einer WIM-Image-Datei zu booten, anstatt die Systemdateien auf eine normale Partition zu extrahieren. Windows speichert seine Systemdateien in der komprimierten WIM-Image-Datei und liest sie daraus.

    Dies bedeutet, dass Windows auf viel kleineren Laufwerken Platz finden kann – mit einem Nachteil. WIMBoot ist wahrscheinlich etwas langsamer als normal unter Windows, da Windows CPU-Zyklen für das Dekomprimieren der Dateien aufwenden muss.

    WIMBoot von Windows 8.1 konnte nur von einem PC-Hersteller oder Systemadministrator aktiviert werden, wenn Windows auf einem PC installiert wurde. Sie konnten es später nicht selbst aktivieren. Die neue “CompactOS” -Funktion in Windows 10 kann jedoch mit dem Befehl Compact.exe im laufenden Betrieb aktiviert oder deaktiviert werden.

    Windows 10 behandelt dies normalerweise für Sie, daher sollten Sie es wahrscheinlich nicht verwenden

    Während Sie CompactOS selbst aktivieren oder deaktivieren können, sollten Sie dies wahrscheinlich auf den meisten PCs tun. Windows aktiviert die CompactOS-Funktion automatisch auf Computern, auf denen Windows der Meinung ist, dass dies eine gute Idee ist. Wenn Sie nicht wissen, was Sie tun, sollten Sie Windows mit dieser Entscheidung vertraut machen.

    Durch die Aktivierung von CompactOS werden bestimmte Windows-Systemdateien komprimiert, um Speicherplatz freizugeben. Wenn Sie ein 16-GB-Tablet oder einen 32-GB-Laptop haben und der Speicherplatz extrem knapp ist, kann dies eine Rolle spielen. Auf einem normalen PC mit einem anständigen Solid-State-Laufwerk oder einer ordentlichen Festplatte verlangsamen Sie Ihr Windows-Betriebssystem, ohne dass dies einen echten Vorteil bedeutet.

    Dies ist vergleichbar mit der Aktivierung der NTFS-Komprimierung auf Ihrem gesamten Systemlaufwerk, ist jedoch viel zielgerichteter. Es komprimiert nicht alles auf Ihrer Festplatte – nur bestimmte Systemdateien. Die Aktivierung der CompactOS-Funktion sollte für die Leistung besser sein als die Komprimierung auf Laufwerksebene. Die Leistung wird jedoch bei aktiviertem CompactOS wahrscheinlich noch etwas schlechter sein als ohne.

    Mit Windows 10 können Sie jedoch CompactOS manuell aktivieren oder deaktivieren. Möglicherweise haben Sie einen 64-GB-Computer, und Sie benötigen dringend ein paar Gigabyte mehr. Oder Sie möchten nicht die Leistungseinbußen von CompactOS auf einem Computer mit weniger Speicherplatz. Im Gegensatz zu WIMBoot unter Windows 8.1 können Sie es jetzt aktivieren oder deaktivieren, ohne Windows neu zu installieren.

    So prüfen, aktivieren und deaktivieren Sie CompactOS

    Sie können die CompactOS-Funktion mit dem Befehl Compact.exe in einem Eingabeaufforderungsfenster mit Administratorberechtigungen steuern.

    Zunächst müssen Sie als Administrator ein Eingabeaufforderungsfenster öffnen. Klicken Sie mit der rechten Maustaste auf die Schaltfläche Start, oder drücken Sie Windows + X. Wählen Sie dann “Eingabeaufforderung (Admin)”, um eine zu öffnen.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Führen Sie den folgenden Befehl aus, um zu überprüfen, ob CompactOS auf Ihrem Computer aktiviert ist:

    Standardmäßig wird eine Meldung angezeigt, die besagt, dass Windows den Status für Ihren PC ausgewählt hat. Wenn Sie CompactOS manuell aktivieren oder deaktivieren, wird eine Meldung angezeigt, die besagt, dass “es im aktuellen Status verbleibt, es sei denn, ein Administrator ändert es.”

    Führen Sie den folgenden Befehl aus, um CompactOS zu aktivieren. Das Komprimieren Ihrer Betriebssystemdateien kann nur wenige Minuten oder 20 Minuten oder länger dauern. Das hängt von der Geschwindigkeit Ihres Computers ab.

    Im folgenden Beispiel haben Sie durch die Aktivierung von CompactOS auf unserem Test-PC etwa 2,2 GB Speicherplatz freigegeben.

    Führen Sie den folgenden Befehl aus, um CompactOS zu deaktivieren. Es wird einige Zeit dauern, bis Windows deaktiviert wird. Wie lange dieser Vorgang dauert, hängt von der Geschwindigkeit Ihres Computers ab.

    Wir empfehlen den meisten Windows-Benutzern nicht, sich damit zu verhalten. Windows sollte automatisch damit umgehen und die richtigen Entscheidungen für die meisten PCs treffen. Wenn Sie wissen, dass Sie ein Sonderfall sind, kann jeder Windows-Benutzer diese Entscheidung jetzt außer Kraft setzen. Wir freuen uns, die Option zu haben.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Windows 10, yalnızca 16GB alan içeren tabletler veya dizüstü bilgisayarlar gibi çok az miktarda depolama alanına sahip bilgisayarlar için tasarlanmış yeni bir “CompactOS” özelliğine sahiptir. Tam disk NTFS sıkıştırma gibi, ama daha akıllı. İşte nasıl çalışıyor.

    Bu, Windows 8.1’in WIMBoot’un yerine geçer

    “CompactOS” özelliği, Windows 8.1’de sunulan “Windows Görüntü Dosyası Önyüklemesi” (WIMBoot) özelliğinin yerine geçer. WIMBoot, sistem dosyalarını normal gibi bir bölüme çıkarmak yerine Windows’un bir .wim görüntü dosyasından önyüklemesini sağladı. Windows, sistem dosyalarını sıkıştırılmış .wim görüntü dosyasında saklar ve bunları okur.

    Bu, Windows’un çok daha küçük sürücülere sığabileceği anlamına gelir; WIMBoot, normalde Windows’u kullanmaktan biraz daha yavaştır, çünkü Windows dosyaları açmak için CPU döngüleri harcamak zorundadır.

    Windows 8.1’in WIMBoot’u, yalnızca Windows bir PC’ye yüklendiğinde bir bilgisayar üreticisi veya sistem yöneticisi tarafından etkinleştirilebilir. Daha sonra kendin etkinleştiremezsin. Windows 10’daki yeni “CompactOS” özelliği, Compact.exe komutuyla anında etkinleştirilebilir veya devre dışı bırakılabilir.

    Windows 10 Normalde Bunu Sizin İçin Kullanır, Muhtemelen Kullanmamalısınız

    CompactOS’u kendiniz etkinleştirebilir veya devre dışı bırakabilirsiniz, ancak muhtemelen çoğu bilgisayarda bunu yapmamalısınız. Windows, Windows’un iyi bir fikir olduğunu düşündüğü bilgisayarlarda CompactOS özelliğini otomatik olarak etkinleştirir ve ne yaptığınızı bilmiyorsanız, bu kararla Windows’a güvenmelisiniz.

    CompactOS’u etkinleştirmek, belirli Windows sistem dosyalarını yer açmak için sıkıştıracaktır. 16GB’lık bir tabletiniz veya 32GB’lık bir dizüstü bilgisayarınız varsa ve depolama alanı aşırı sıkıysa, bu önemli olabilir. İyi bir yarıiletken sürücüye veya saygın bir sabit sürücüye sahip normal bir bilgisayarda, Windows işletim sisteminizi gerçek bir avantaj olmadan yavaşlatıyorsunuz.

    Bu, tüm sistem sürücünüzde NTFS sıkıştırmasını etkinleştirmeye benzer, ancak daha hedeflidir. Sürücünüzdeki her şeyi sıkıştırmaz – yalnızca belirli sistem dosyalarına. CompactOS özelliğini etkinleştirmek, sürücü genelinde sıkıştırmayı etkinleştirmek yerine performans açısından daha iyi olmalıdır. Bununla birlikte, performans hala CompactOS etkinken etkin olmasa da biraz daha kötü.

    Bununla birlikte, Windows 10, CompactOS’u manuel olarak etkinleştirmenizi veya devre dışı bırakmanızı sağlar. Belki 64GB’lık bir bilgisayarınız var ve çaresizce birkaç gigabayt’a ihtiyacınız var veya belki de daha az depolama alanı olan bir bilgisayarda CompactOS’un performans cezasını istemiyorsunuz. Artık, Windows 8.1’deki WIMBoot’tan farklı olarak, Windows’u yeniden yüklemeden etkinleştirmeyi veya devre dışı bırakmayı seçebilirsiniz.

    CompactOS Nasıl Denetlenir, Etkinleştirilir ve Devre Dışı Bırakılır

    CompactOS özelliğini Compact.exe komutuyla Yönetici izinlerine sahip bir Komut İstemi penceresinde kontrol edebilirsiniz.

    Öncelikle, yönetici olarak bir Komut İstemi penceresi açmanız gerekir. Başlat düğmesine sağ tıklayın veya Windows + X tuşlarına basın, ardından bir tane açmak için “Komut İstemi (Yönetici)” seçeneğini seçin.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    CompactOS’un bilgisayarınızda etkin olup olmadığını kontrol etmek için aşağıdaki komutu çalıştırın:

    Varsayılan olarak, Windows’un PC’nizin durumunu seçtiğini belirten bir mesaj göreceksiniz. CompactOS’u manuel olarak etkinleştirir veya devre dışı bırakırsanız, bir yönetici değiştirmediği sürece “[geçerli] durumda kalacağını” söyleyen bir mesaj görürsünüz.

    CompactOS’u etkinleştirmek için aşağıdaki komutu çalıştırın. İşletim sistemi dosyalarınızı sıkıştırma işlemi yalnızca birkaç dakika sürebilir veya 20 dakika veya daha uzun sürebilir. Bilgisayarınızın hızına bağlıdır.

    Aşağıdaki örnekte, CompactOS’un etkinleştirilmesi test PC’mizde yaklaşık 2, 2 GB alan boşaltmıştır.

    CompactOS’u devre dışı bırakmak için aşağıdaki komutu çalıştırın. Windows’un da devre dışı bırakması biraz zaman alacak. Bu işlemin süresi bilgisayarın hızına bağlıdır.

    Yine, çoğu Windows kullanıcısının bununla uğraşmasını önermiyoruz. Windows bunu otomatik olarak ele almalı ve çoğu PC için doğru kararları vermelidir. Ancak, özel bir durum olduğunuzu biliyorsanız, herhangi bir Windows kullanıcısı bu kararı geçersiz kılabilir. Seçeneğe sahip olduğumuz için mutluyuz.

    Data is one of the most precious assets of any organization, and this means, you have to do whatever it takes to protect it. Thankfully, you have help from Windows 10. The operating system comes with many features such as system image recovery, system restore, backup and restore, and file history. The most important of them all is a feature called Windows 10 storage spaces, a software-configured RAID built right into the operating system itself.

    What is Windows 10 storage spaces?

    Windows 10 storage spaces is a technology that protects your data from drive failures. It is similar to RAID, except that it is implemented in software.

    To implement Windows 10 storage spaces, simply combine three or more drives into a single logical pool. Format this drive using NTFS or the ReFS file system, whichever is comfortable for you, and store multiple copies of your data on these drives to protect it from data failures. You can add as many drives as you want to a logical pool.

    These virtual drives appear as regular storage space on file explorer. You can choose to create spaces that are equal, lesser than, or greater than the physical capacity of your machine. This choice is completely up to you and your storage requirements.

    A word of caution here — the disks that have been added to the pool are no longer available individually from within Windows because they are virtualized and dedicated entirely to the pool.

    Also, the total number of Windows 10 storage spaces you create depends on the physical storage of your machine. Essentially, this means you cannot create an infinite number of storage spaces to store your data.

    Let’s understand this concept with a small example. You have 500GB of physical storage and you have created five pools of 100GB each. Each time you create a virtual drive, you will use a small portion of your physical drive for storing its details. This is also called thin provisioning. So, there is a limit to how many storage spaces you can create, depending on the size of your physical storage.

    Uses of Windows 10 storage spaces

    Though you’re unlikely to use Windows 10 storage spaces for everyday tasks, it can be useful in many ways.

    First off, storage spaces help to create a big network drive with a lot of space to store your data. This is much cleaner and more efficient than sharing multiple drives on the same network.

    You can manage data better with storage spaces. For example, if you have many USB drives connected to the same computer, you can combine it all into a single logical drive, so you can organize it all in a single place.

    Storage spaces can be configured on a Windows PC, a stand-alone server with all data stored in a single server, clustered server using storage spaces direct, and on a clustered server with one or more SAS storage enclosures.

    Probably the biggest benefit of using storage spaces is the resiliency it provides to your data. Generally speaking, storage spaces supports four types of resiliency, and they are:

    Simple resiliency

    In this type of resiliency, your data is stored only as one copy. Obviously, by itself, there is no resiliency from data failures.

    It is ideal for storing temporary data like video-rendering files.

    Two-way mirror

    In a two-way mirror, two copies of your data are written on two different drives, so your data is protected from the failure of a single drive.

    Three-way mirror

    It is similar to a two-way mirror, except that it writes three copies in three different drives. So, your data is protected from the simultaneous failure of two drives.

    Parity

    In this type of resilience, storage spaces writes your data with parity information on an available drive to protect against any single drive failure. It is similar to the standard RAID 5 technology.

    This option is best for archiving data and for streaming music and videos. But it requires at least three storage drives to protect from a single drive failure and a minimum of seven drives to protect from two disk failures.

    You can choose one of these four types of resiliency based on your goals. For example, if drive speed is what you want to achieve, the simple resiliency option is good enough. On the other hand, if you want to protect your data against disk failures, go for the two-way mirror or three-way mirror, but this will take up more space on your disk. If you want to strike a balance between space and speed, parity is a good option. So, the final choice depends on what you want to accomplish.

    Now that you know more about storage spaces and its uses, let’s see how you can create it.

    How to create storage spaces

    Creating storage spaces in Windows 10 is a fairly easy process. You can set it up with the following procedure.

    • Go to the taskbar and type “storage spaces” in the search box. Select storage spaces from the list of results.
    • Choose “create a new pool and storage space.”
    • Next, select the drives you want to add to the pool and choose “create pool” option.
    • Give a name to the drive and choose the resilience option.
    • Input the maximum size of the storage space.
    • Finally, select “create storage space.”

    This should create the storage space for you.

    Removing drives from Windows 10 storage spaces

    There may be times when you’d want to remove some drives from your pool. Here’s how you can do it. To remove drives from Windows 10 storage spaces pool…

    • Go to the taskbar and type “storage spaces” in the search box. Select storage spaces from the list of results.
    • Choose “change settings > physical drives” to see all the drives in your pool.
    • Select the drive you want to remove and choose the option “prepare for removal > prepare for removal.” It is a good idea to keep your computer plugged in with the drive as this removal process can take many hours, depending on the amount of data stored in it.
    • After the removal process is completed, select “remove > remove drive.” Finally, disconnect the drive from your PC.

    With this, the removal process is complete.

    Deleting a storage spaces

    You can delete the entire storage spaces at any time. To do that,

    • Open storage spaces from Windows taskbar.
    • Next to every storage space, you’ll see a delete option. Simply click this link against the storage space you want to delete

    That’s it! Your storage space is deleted.

    Some last-minute pointers…

    Here are some pointers for creating, using, and managing storage spaces.

    • Storage spaces cannot give protection to your main system disk, so you will still have to use backup tools for that data. But data stored in secondary disks can be replicated using storage spaces.
    • You cannot change the resiliency or file system of your storage space.
    • You can add more drives or rename a space at any time.
    • Storage spaces is available only on Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 home.
    • The drive requires a minimum of 5GB to be a part of storage spaces.
    • You need administrator rights to perform any of these operations.

    With all this information, you should be able to create, manage, use, and remove storage spaces.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    В Windows 10 появилась новая функция «CompactOS», предназначенная для ПК с очень небольшим объемом памяти, таких как планшеты или ноутбуки с объемом всего 16 ГБ. Это похоже на сжатие NTFS с полным диском, но умнее. Вот как это работает.

    Это заменяет WIMBoot Windows 8.1

    Функция «CompactOS» заменяет функцию «Загрузка файла образа Windows» (WIMBoot), предлагаемую Microsoft в Windows 8.1. WIMBoot позволяет Windows загружаться из файла образа WIM, а не извлекать системные файлы в раздел, как обычно. Windows хранит свои системные файлы в сжатом файле образа .wim и считывает их из него.

    Это означает, что Windows может поместиться на гораздо меньшие диски – с одним недостатком. WIMBoot, вероятно, немного медленнее, чем при обычном использовании Windows, поскольку Windows вынуждена тратить циклы ЦП на распаковку файлов.

    WIMBoot в Windows 8.1 мог быть включен только производителем ПК или системным администратором, когда Windows была установлена ​​на ПК. Вы не могли включить это самостоятельно потом. Однако новую функцию «CompactOS» в Windows 10 можно включить или отключить на лету с помощью команды Compact.exe.

    Windows 10 обычно справляется с этим для вас, так что вы, вероятно, не должны его использовать

    Хотя вы можете включить или отключить CompactOS самостоятельно, вам, вероятно, не следует делать это на большинстве ПК. Windows автоматически включает функцию CompactOS на компьютерах, на которых Windows считает это хорошей идеей, и, если вы не знаете, что делаете, вы должны доверить Windows это решение.

    Включение CompactOS сжимает определенные системные файлы Windows, чтобы освободить место. Если у вас есть планшет на 16 ГБ или ноутбук на 32 ГБ, а объем памяти слишком мал, это может иметь значение. На обычном ПК с приличным твердотельным накопителем или респектабельным жестким диском вы просто замедляете свою операционную систему Windows без реального преимущества.

    Это похоже на включение сжатия NTFS на всем системном диске, но гораздо более целенаправленно. Он не сжимает все на вашем диске – только определенные системные файлы. Включение функции CompactOS должно быть лучше для производительности, чем простое сжатие на всем диске. Однако при включенной CompactOS производительность все равно будет немного хуже, чем без нее.

    Тем не менее, Windows 10 позволяет вручную включать или отключать CompactOS. Возможно, у вас есть компьютер на 64 ГБ, и вам отчаянно нужно еще несколько гигабайт, или, возможно, вам не нужно снижение производительности CompactOS на компьютере с меньшим объемом памяти. Теперь у вас есть возможность включить или отключить его без переустановки Windows, в отличие от WIMBoot в Windows 8.1.

    Как проверить, включить и отключить CompactOS

    Вы можете управлять функцией CompactOS с помощью команды Compact.exe в окне командной строки с разрешениями администратора.

    Сначала вам нужно открыть окно командной строки от имени администратора. Щелкните правой кнопкой мыши кнопку «Пуск» или нажмите Windows + X, затем выберите «Командная строка (Admin)», чтобы открыть ее.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Чтобы проверить, включен ли CompactOS на вашем компьютере, выполните следующую команду:

    По умолчанию вы увидите сообщение о том, что Windows выбрала состояние для вашего ПК. Если вы включите или отключите CompactOS вручную, вы увидите сообщение о том, что «он останется в [текущем] состоянии, если администратор не изменит его».

    Чтобы включить CompactOS, выполните следующую команду. Процесс сжатия файлов вашей операционной системы может занять всего несколько минут или 20 минут или дольше. Это зависит от скорости вашего компьютера.

    В приведенном ниже примере включение CompactOS освободило около 2, 2 ГБ пространства на нашем тестовом ПК.

    Чтобы отключить CompactOS, выполните следующую команду. Windows также потребуется некоторое время, чтобы отключить его. Сколько времени занимает этот процесс, зависит от скорости вашего компьютера.

    Опять же, мы не рекомендуем большинству пользователей Windows возиться с этим. Windows должна обрабатывать это автоматически и принимать правильные решения для большинства ПК. Но если вы знаете, что у вас особый случай, любой пользователь Windows может отменить это решение. Мы рады возможности.

    Windows uses a system folder called WinSxS to store files that are needed for your Windows installation, as well as backups or updates to those files. It’s a space hog, however, taking up several gigabytes of space and growing with each Windows Update you perform. Use the steps below to clean up unnecessary files in that WinSxS folder and reclaim valuable hard drive space.

    You can’t just delete everything in the WinSxS folder, because some of those files are needed for Windows to run and update reliably. However, with Windows 7 and above you can use the built-in Disk Cleanup tool to delete older versions of Windows updates you no longer need. With Windows 8.1 and Windows 10, you can use the Command Prompt to clean up the WinSxS folder as well.

    Use Disk Cleanup to Delete Old Updates From the SxS Folder

    1. Open the Disk Cleanup tool. You can do this by typing “disk cleanup” in the taskbar and clicking “Disk Cleanup”

    2. Click the “Cleanup system files” button.

    3. Check the box next to “Windows Update Cleanup.”

    4. Click OK.

    Note that if you don’t see the Windows Update Cleanup option in Disk Cleanup, that means there aren’t any files that can be safely deleted.

    Use the Command Prompt to Clean Up the SxS Folder

    If you want a more thorough view of how much space the SxS folder is taking up and the option to clean up unneeded files, use the Command Prompt.

    1. Launch the command prompt with admin priviledges. You can do this by right-clicking on the Windows icon in the taskbar and click “Command Prompt (Admin).”

    2. Enter the command: Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    It could take a few minutes for the DISM tool to analyze the folder. When it’s done, you’ll see size details of the components in the WinSxS folder and, at the bottom, a recommendation to clean it up or not.

    3. If recommended, clean up the folder using this command in the Command Prompt: Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    There’s another command you can use to uninstall Windows updates and service packs, which saves more space, but we don’t recommend you do that, because you won’t be able to uninstall any current service updates or service packs after performing this. The command is Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

    The cleanup might take some time, depending on your system and how much you’re deleting, but that extra space will be worth it.

    To fix low disk space warning in Windows 10, 8, 7, you can choose to free up disk space or extend the drive that is running out space.

    By Cherry / Last Updated March 17, 2022

    Low disk space warning

    Many users have met the low disk space warning in their Windows operating system when the hard drive is running out of space. When the low disk space warning appeared, your computer became slow, and you cannot install new applications on your computer. It will pop out frequently until the low disk space warning removed.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    You may meet similar balloon messages as the following:

    в–ІWhen your hard drive at 200MB of free disk space, the low disk space warning will prompt:

    You are running out of disk space on Local Disk (drive letter). To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here.

    в–ІWhen the hard drive at 80 and 50 MB of free disk space, it will prompt:

    You are running very low on disk space on Local Disk (drive letter). To free space on this drive by deleting old or unnecessary files, click here.

    Besides, you may receive various warning messages regarding disk space:

    в–ІWhen your hard drive at 200MB threshold of free disk space, it will warn you that your Windows drive has only (amount MB) of free disk space available. It is recommended to have at least a minimum of 200 MB free on your Windows drive to ensure system reliability. You can free even more disk space by removing programs that you do not use. Would you like to do that now?

    в–ІWhen your hard drive at 80 MB threshold of free disk space, it will warn you that your Windows Drive has only (amount MB) of free disk space available. This is a critically low amount of disk space. If you do not free at least 200 MB, on this drive, System Restore may not be able to track or undo harmful changes to your computer. You can free even more disk space by removing programs that you do not use. Would you like to do that now?

    Solve low disk space warning in Windows 10/8/7

    When you meet the low disk space error, you cannot use your computer smoothly, and you need to remove low disk space warning as soon as possible. But how to solve the low disk space warning in Windows 10/8/7? Here will provides you two ways to solve the problem (both available for low disk space windows 7, low disk space windows 8, and Windows 10 disk space warning).

    Method 1: Clean up disk for free up disk space

    You can see if your hard drive coming with low disk space, it will display a red bar in Windows Explorer. Right-click the running out of space drive, select “Properties”. Here is C: drive.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Then, it will show you the disk properties window, click the “Disk Cleanup”, and click OK to move on.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    It will show you another window that you can choose the files to delete, so that you can free up more space for the drive.

    Or you can click “Clean up system files” to clean up files created by Windows. And here you can click More Options to free more disk space.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Then, it will show you another window to ask you “are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?”. Click Delete and it will execute the task.

    Method 2: extend low disk space drive

    Another way to solve low disk space in Windows 7/8/10 is to extend partition. For example, if your C: drive is running out of space, then, you can add unallocated space to system partition to make it bigger. If there is no unallocated space on your hard drive, you can make system partition bigger by taking space of D: partition or other partitions.

    Windows built-in Disk Management can extend volume, but it has limitations. It needs an unallocated space at the right side of the low disk space partition and adjacent to the partition, otherwise, the Extend Volume will be grayed out. If you want to extend partition more flexible, here you can use the great free partition manager AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard, which can help you extend partition in simple clicks.

    (Supposed that there is non-adjacent unallocated space on the hard drive. If there is no unallocated space, you can shrink one partition that has enough free space at first. )

    Step 1. Install and launch it on your computer. It will show you the basic disk environment. Right-click the partition that needs to be extended (here is C: drive) and select Merge Partitions.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Step 2. It will pop out a window where you can merge the C: drive with the unallocated space on your hard drive, no matter where the unallocated space located.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Step 3. Click OK, and you will back to the main interface again and you can see that your sytem partition is bigger that before. Preview the operations at the Pending Operations. Click Apply at the toolbar to submit it.

    How to save space on storage-starved pcs with windows 10’s “compactos”

    Thus, it won’t give you low disk space warning, and you can use your computer at a faster speed. AOMEI Partition Assistant is a great alternative to Windows Disk Management. It breaks out the limitations of Disk Management, and it provides you many other functions that can help you manage your hard drive better. Besides, extend partition, you can use it to format partition, move partition, delete partition, etc. In the case of this article, you can allocate free space from D: drive to extend C: drive directly if you upgrade to AOMEI Partition Assistant Professional, which contains more features.
