  • Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy "We wanted to give you an update on the final size of the PC version of the game, which will not be 150 GB. The team is in the last stages of optimizing the final game and we can confirm the file size will be approximately 80 GB at launch."

    Compactor shaved 30% off my DCS install - 80GB instead of 114GB.
  • File compression using ‘CompactGUI’?

    That's simply not true. I use compact.exe to compress all my games, its NTFS' built-in seamless compression. If you're going to give advice to someone at least make sure you know WTF you are talking about. u/Yes_This_Is_A_User use this one it's a nicer UI.

    Hey, i’ve used a program called Freaky/Compacter, https://github.com/Freaky/Compactor, it worked really well for me, got 10gbps off cs go, but it doesn’t work with all games, on gta i got around 800mbps, you should give it a try, it’s a life saver!

    You can free up a considerable amount of space in Windows by deleting junk files and old windows updates. Run cleanmgr as administrator first (tick all the boxes), reboot and then download and run ccleaner. Further to that, you can seriously free up a ton of space by compressing your games library and program files folders - you can use Compactor for this.

    The tool in the image is Compactor, a GUI front end to the Windows compact.exe built-in tool to utilise NTFS filesystem compression.

    Compactor (GUI for built-in win 10 transparent compression) works really well for games, often getting 0.30x-0.65x compression ratios, game updates only decompress and patch what they need and then you just have to rerun the tool to recompress them. depending on your CPU, some games even load faster.

  • [Gitoxide September Update]: In the name of safety
    reddit.com/r/rust | 2021-10-22
    My highlights are the introduction of stability tiers along with a concept for releases, and pack file generation which got even faster and finally resolves the riddle around these 'unknown objects' that seemed to hide in gits tree. They turned out to be… git submodule ids, commit hashes into other repositories :).
