I checked the "Compress Drive" option on an external drive (1TB) on Windows 8. After clicking OK, the OS started to compress the files folder by folder on the drive. As it took too long, I shutdown the PC while the operation was still in progress.
After the reboot I saw that half of the files and folders were compressed, but the OS did not continue to compress the remaining files.
The only thing I can do is uncheck "Compress Drive" option (all files are decompressed) and then do again "Compress Drive" to start the process from stretch.
As this will take hours, Im looking for a way to tell windows to continue the previous cancelled operation of compressing the drive. Are the any solutions on that?
