Default Battery & File questions. - 01-08-2009, 03:22 PM

Is it ok to keep charging the battery every 4 hours or should i use AC power ?
I see some people say to Uncompress the files on the C drive.
Why does the Mini come with the compress files option checked ?

A battery has a more-or-less fixed number of charge/discharge cycles it can provide. If you are able to use AC, then you should probably use it.

The Mini comes comes with a compressed drive to make more space available for what you put on it.
