COMPACT.EXE to compress files, folders and volumes that use NTFS (via: The Old New Thing – Site Home – MSDN Blogs)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/13

Thanks Raymond Chen for suggesting about [WayBackCOMPACT.EXE to set NTFS compression flags for files, directories or volumes:

The command-line tool for this is COMPACT.EXE. Type compact /? for usage information.

Example to recursively compress D:\backup:

compact /C /S /A D:\backup\*.*
