Drive Compression

Computers, Websites and Other Technology - Talk Photography - www.talkphotography.co.uk
The 2nd HDD in my laptop is getting full of images, just 21GB left of 690GB capacity.

I noticed that it was possible to compress the files, sub-folders and drive so gave it a go, took a few hours over night ... end result free space went from 21GB tp 23GB

I knew some files compressed better than others but I confess to being shocked that such a long process would yield such pathetic results.

Is there a better way? (Other than additional drives, which is in hand).
