Hi gmharkcom, I hope you are not kidding us.

If you really mean 300 KB, it is nothing, I mean nothing at all, forget it.

If you mean 300000 compacted files, then yes it is slowing down your computer.

I also hope that, you are using the term compacting as compressed, as it is seen in Disk Cleanup window.


If you want to mean something else, then please post again with more explanation.

OK gmharkcom :-D, I had to make sure that you were serious.


Even 300,000k is not much at all, you can neglect it or let it be compressed. You will not (nobody will) notice any difference. At the moment I have more than 5 GB of files waiting to be compressed.

If you have a lot of empty space in your disk, don't bother to compress the files. Compessing files will slow down read and write of the disk, that's why there is an option, to define the time passed since you last time used a file, for the files to be compressed.


I hope this is helpful to you.

Hi gmharkcom

8 bit(s) = 1 byte

1024 bytes = 1 KB (Kilo Bytes) (2^10 bytes = 2¹º)

1024 KB = 1 MB (Mega Bytes) (2^20 bytes = 2²º)

300,000 KB = 293 MB (293*(2^20 bytes))






k = kilo = 1000

300k = 300 000


true so 300,000 k = 286 MB



Um, I meant 300,000k. So what do I do to clear it? Hey - I'm a newbie!:oops:
