In Response To: Maybe he auto-deletes Recycle Bin when HD full??? (Dan LeGate)

I have noticed that ZTree is a bit slower here, but I believe it is due to going through the Windows API stuff (bloatware...). As to washing a CVF, there have to be better ways... However, if you use the "random" wash pattern feature, it should not compress at all (and you would write maybe 120MB...)

Kim: ?is WASH safe on a CVF?
also ?Is "random" really random (i.e., a fairly good generator)?
