    I'm not sure what you mean but you may be a bit confused.

    Checking the compress unused files (or whatever it's called) will compress files you have not accessed in a while - it will not delete anything.

    did you read my first reply? "Compress old files" does NOT delete anything - you don't have a problem :slap:

    It even gives you a description, READ IT! It says right there that nothing will be deleted, it just compresses them to save space.
