Small batch file to recursively compact a directory using NTFS compression

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/04/07


if [%1]==[] goto :eof
call compact /s /c %1 %1\*.*

Example usage:

compact-directory-recursively.bat C:\ProgramData\{51D553F1-B483-41C2-B35E-6D461D9E0F9C}

compact-directory-recursively.bat "C:\ProgramData\Package Cache"

@for /d %d in (*.*) do @call compact-directory-recursively.bat "%d"

The @ signs are to get less output clutter.
