    Well, your english is very hard to understand... So here is what I got from it.

    You want to compress your hard drive.. why? To save space? NTFS compression can save disk space, but compressing data can affect backup and restore performance. The major problem introduced by disk compression is SPEED, or rather, lack of it. Disk compression slows down your hard drives by a noticible margin, because every time you open a file, it has to be decompressed into memory. And everytime you save a file, more memory is taken up by the compression process. Of course, the makers of the software packages advertise that the difference is imperceptible. They lie. Your better off not doing that. lol

    Plus, your anime files are already in a compressed video format... Trying to compress them further isn't going to gain much space...

    Re: Slave Drive

    now that my drive has so little space i keep getting this pop up window from the start bar saying to click here to open the drives clean disk option every 5 minutes. is there a way to disable this feature? it starting to get on my nerves.

    i cant do what it says. theres only 3 options. one is to empty ti recycleing bin wich is empty. the second is to compress the drive wich only contains my anime files. and the third is to catalog files for the content indexer wich show it will free up 0 kb anyway.

    I'm not sure if this option is available to you or not but it works for me.
    Burn your anime to DVDs. Having them in your hard drive takes up way too much space.

    Also, try the 'Cleanup' option that is located under drive properties... It's amazing how much space those abandoned temp files can take up. Also 'Documents and Setting'/<user>/Local Setting/Temp is another place where space hogging temp files (which poorly written application forget to cleanup..) can be found.
