Question ? Compression Question ?

I have I hope a simple question. First I had two concerts on my full hard drive that I did not yet back up. I wanted to transfer my files and settings to a second hard drive that was bigger. I tried something that I never did before, and that was use the files and settings transfer wizard from my XP cd. I tried to transfer my files/settings from my 40 gig (C drive to my 80 gig (E drive. I hit the go tab and walked away from it. Later I noticed that it said "Compressing C: (files)" Did this just compress my concert files? I made an MD5 before I used the wizard and after I transfered I did a checksum verification and it said no errors. How can I tell if a VOB file has been compressed to lossy and back again? It was only two concerts but I really dont want to download them again. Thanks for any info.

As long as the MD5 verified, you're OK.

Re: ? Compression Question ?

it *sounds* more like a .rar- or .zip-type compression it was using, so you shouldn't have any problems...

i'm sure windows didn't compress yer DVD to VCD or anything...but then again, who knows with microsoft

Modern social theory casts a highly skeptical eye on any declaration that a group of persons is without conflict, and insists, on the contrary, that conflict is natural to groups, and even more, is essential to them. -Patrick Henry

If you are using XP Pro, it's most likely the NTFS file compression discussed here.
