    I have a Samsung SV0322A hard drive which is 3.2 gig. I read in the drives manual (on the samsung website) that the drives maximum capacity is 6.4Gig... I don't get it.
    I have Windows XP installed on the drive, and therefore I don't have very much room left on the drive after I have installed the software that I need.
    Can anyone tell me a way that I can compress the hard drive, but without slowing the system down too much?

    Samsung SV0322A is only a 3.2 gig drive. the 32 in the serial number indicate that, if it where sv0642a then it would be a 6.4 gig.

    Compression is really a good thing to stay away from.
    In my opinion I would get a larger hard drive and clone the existing to it

    I don't beleive xp will work with a compressed drive anyway
