JAM Software - Windows Freeware

NTFSRatio is a program that displays the ration of NTFS compression for files. Compression and decompression can be performed from within the program for files that do not compress well. In that case you can avoid the overhead of performing decompression every time the file is read by uncompressing it.
Compressed files are decompressed every time the operating system reads them from disk and compressed when they are saved back to disk. Compressing system files, hence, creates a lot of overhead and can slow down the system. How significantly? I need to investigate. :)
