How do I Compress Folders?
Compressing your drive to save space is an easy way of storing more on your current hard drive; and you can compress individual folders, or the entire drive. Thankfully, this technology is built into Windows XP.
To compress a specific folder, open Windows Explorer and navigate to it. Right click the the folder and choose Properties from the context menu. When the properties sheet appears, click the Advanced button on the General tab. Click the Compress Contents to save disk space, check box. Click the OK button. When you get back to the properties sheet, click the OK or Apply button. Windows XP will compress the contents of the folder, creating more space on the drive.
