I just got a new tablet (Samsung Series 7 with Windows 8 ) and have started to load some stuff on it (music, docs, etc.) Since it's just a 128 GB hard drive (I'm used to my laptop's 300 GB), I was thinking about compressing my C:\ drive to save space. Have any of you done this before? Do you know of any possible problem (of note might be that my C:\ drive is also bitlocker encrypted)? Would I be better off just purchasing a nice, large external drive?

But seriously... Don't!

I've always been a bit paranoid, and, after having encrypted my computers for a few years now without any problems, I really just do it to (a) make me feel secure and (b) just in case I loose it somewhere people don't go snooping around my email and stuff
as noted, compressing is just a bad idea overall.
besides that, why have you encrypted it ? do you have sensitive secret documents from work on it or something ? as that's the only reason it would be necessary to encrypt a drive, and it'll just lead to potential troubles down the road.

It's a popular internet meme!? It's not really offensive is it?
Probably not the wisest photo to use.
