Saw this on Reddit and it seems pretty awesome. I had some good results with games but I'm wondering long term if I won't notice any performance issues. So far everything seems great though, and the compression sometimes cuts the file size down by A LOT. Bioshock Remastered went from like 21 GB down to 16 GB. Some games see no benefit, but some people have also reported games compressing to 1/10th the size of the original in some cases.

Here's the original thread, which has links to the Results Wiki and GUI app: https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/76hj26/i_tested_25_games_against_the_windows_compact/?limit=1500

Only problems in games like guild wars that use massive single files. It ends up decompressing the entire thing at launch every time.
