Compressing ClientApps Folder on an SBS 2003 Server

I found the free space on the C: drive on a Windows Small Business Server (SBS) 2003 system was almost depleted. By compressing the ClientApps folder I was able to gain another 300 MB of space.

I found the C:\ClientApps folder was taking about 1 GB of disk space, so I chose to compress it, which you can do by the following procedure.

  1. Right-click on "ClientApps" folder.
  2. Select "Properties".
  3. ClientApps - Uncompressed

  4. Click on the "Advanced" button and select "Compress contents to save disk space.
  5. Select compress contents to save
disk space

  6. Click on "OK".
  7. Click on "OK" again to close the "ClientApps Properties" window.
  8. When the "Confirm Attribute Changes" window appears, leave "Apply changes to this folder, subfolders and files checked and click on "OK".
  9. Confirm attribute changes

When I started the compression, Windows estimated the process would take 23 minutes, but it actually only took a few minutes. It gave me about 300 MB more of disk space. When I right-clicked on the folder afterwards and selected "Properties", the file size was still listed as about 1 GB, but the size on disk was only 751 MB.

ClientApps - Compressed

For other steps for freeing disk space, see Freeing Disk Space.
