Default Uncompressing C Drive - 01-16-2009, 06:47 PM

Can someone tell me how to uncompress the C drive on my Dell Mini 9? I'm told it speeds up the machine. Can anyone verify this for me?

Highlight the drive- right click properties, and you should see at the bottom a check box for uncompress HD and indexing.

Unchecking either/both should make your computer run faster. Good luck

Be aware that it may take several hours for this to complete.
