NTFS compression is available on volumes that use the NTFS file system, and NTFS compression has the following features and limitations:

  • You can use NTFS compression to compress individual files and folders, as well as an entire NTFS volume.
  • You can compress a folder without compressing its contents.
  • You can work with NTFS-compressed files without decompressing them, because they are decompressed and recompressed without user intervention.
  • You can display NTFS-compressed file and folder names in a different color to make them easier to identify.
  • You may notice a decrease in performance when you work with NTFS-compressed files. When you open a compressed file, Windows automatically decompresses it for you, and when you close the file, Windows compresses it again. This process may decrease your computer performance.
  • NTFS-compressed files and folders only remain compressed while they are stored on an NTFS Volume.
  • You cannot encrypt an NTFS compressed file.
