Compress your drive for more space

Are you running out of room on your hard disk drive? It happens to the best of us. But with Windows 98 you have a quick and easy way to gain some extra space.

Here's what to do:

  1. Open My Computer, right-click the C-drive, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Compression tab (this is not available on FAT32 partitions).

If your disk is not compressed, you will have two options for compressing it: Compress Drive or Create New Drive. For example, you may need another partition on your system, so Create New Drive would be your choice. If your disk has already been compressed, you will be shown details on what's compressed, along with options for customizing how the data is compressed. Click the buttons for your preferred choice and follow the directions.
