compact [{/c|/u}] [/s[:dir]] [/a] [/i] [/f] [/q] [FileName[...]]

Parameters
/c : Compresses the specified directory or file.
/u : Uncompresses the specified directory or file.
/s:dir : Specifies that the requested action (compress or uncompress) be applied to all subdirectories of the specified directory, or of the current directory if none is specified.
/a : Displays hidden or system files.
/i : Ignores errors.
/f : Forces compression or uncompression of the specified directory or file. This is used in the case of a file that was partly compressed when the operation was interrupted by a system crash. To force the file to be compressed in its entirety, use the /c and /f parameters and specify the partially compressed file.
/q : Reports only the most essential information.
FileName : Specifies the file or directory. You can use multiple file names and wildcard characters (* and ?).
/? : Displays help at the command prompt.
