    You can use NTFS compression to make files smaller on a drive, and in this guide, we'll show you how to do it.
    On Windows 10, the New Technology File System (NTFS) file system includes a lightweight compression feature designed to reduce the size of files and save space while retaining normal access without the need for manual decompression like when using different containers.
    However, enabling NTFS compression can have an impact on performance. Even though you don't have to use additional steps, in the background, the feature still has to decompress and recompress files every time you access them, which is a process that requires additional resources.
