So I was bored here at work not doing anything more technical than ctrl+c then ctrl+v. So I got a copy of Windows 7 from our System Admins and installed in on my work box. The installation was pretty easy. It removes your old Windows XP install and puts it into a windows.old directory in case you need reference anything for later.
Now I’ve used Windows 7 before at home when it was in beta so I knew that it ran a lot faster. Faster than XP in my personal opinion. But I never knew that id did super voodoo compression. I really must know how they pulled it off.
I got my box all finished setup and was done with my windows.old directory and went to delete it. And too my surprise Windows 7 had taken my 74.5 GB drive and made it at least 185 GB apparently. As the images show apparently I had 185 GB that I was deleting.
