Would it be a bad move to compress the hard drive,
computer is K6-2 266mhz.
It is already converted to FAT 32.
Will it make it slow to compress the hard drive?

Thanks in advance, I value your opinions!

Wanda,

   Yes, it will slow down your system.  I wouldn't do it if i were you.  Purchase a bigger Harddrive, your system will love you for it.
