MS compresses some of the OS files in 8.1 RT
Hi guys, just wanted to let you know my discovery.
Apparently, some of the files in Windows folder on my Surface RT are compressed after 8.1 update. You can easily see those as their name is displayed in blue.
Overall, this allows for the additional 700 megs of free space, which is not very much, but shows that MS is commited to giving us as much space as possible.
Also compressed are windows error reports which otherwise take quite a good amount of space (they can be found at C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER)
Nothing similar on the x64 version on my NUC.
