    How to choose the desired compressing format when compressing binaries

    hello, i have a question...(speaking of windows 10, compact os) how can i choose what format (algorithm) i want (for example xpress4k) to use it and compress my os binaries in that format? For example i want to choose xpress4k , if i just type the command : C:\Windows\system32>compact/compactos: always automatically compress the file in whatever format it wants, and i want xpress4k. So how to make it follow my demand? Thanks

    Open an admin command prompt, type compact /? and you'll see the online help file for the command. Check the information for the /exe parameter, and you get this:

    This shows you how to pick the supported compression technique of your choosing, so you'd simply add /exe:xpress4k to your command string -- EXCEPT that this labeled as the default. So if you don't do or change anything with /exe:... you're already getting what you want.
