    You'd have to use the restore partition on your laptop which will restore your laptop to exactly the state it was in when you bought it. I'm not sure that's really worth it. Note: you'd lose ANYTHING on your hard disk.

    There are free compression programs if you want a compression program- hey, you could even buy a license...

    you might want to check the support site for your laptop.........sometimes the laptop manufacturer will have downloads for the software that was included with your model.......

    An alternative is to use 7-zip. It is free and as good as WinRAR if not better since It can also open .WIM and .ESD file:
