    Maximum compression /Macrium Reflect

    I just made an image of all local drives which compressed to 16.85 GBs from a total of over 40 GBs.

    I used maxium compression.

    Nice shrinkage.
    I saved it on a 32GB usb.
    A money saver on usb drive size for backup.
    I am talking about Macrium Reflect.

    Compression depends entirely on whether the files you have can be compressed. If you had 40gb of txt files, you would get tons of compression. If you had 40gb of mp3 files, you would get almost no compression as they are already compressed.
