I'm in the process of imaging a domain computer using ghost. The problem is the image is too large for my USB stick. The stick is 8GB.

The machine has one drive (C:) drive and only 22GB of 80GB of its hard drive space used.

Question 1. Should I use 'high' or 'fast' when ghost asks which compression should be used?

2. What can I delete off the workstation that's going to lessen the size of the image? I've already deleted temp files, cleaned the HD up, etc...
