Version 1.0.1

Make the most of your space.

MoreSpace Folder Compression overview

MoreSpace Folder Compression enables you to save disk space with HFS+ folder compression, without creating compressed archive files.

HFS+ compressed files will remain at their original location and can be used as before. With MoreSpace applied HFS+ compression there is no need to create separate compressed archive files.

MoreSpace app using Apple HFS+ compression technology was introduced in OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. This compression method also used by Apple to reduce size of OS X system folders.

OS X will automatically decompress HFS+ compressed files on access, no need to manually extract them. When the compressed file(s) being modified or copied, OS X will store them uncompressed.

Finder will show the original (uncompressed) file size of HFS+ compressed files, the occupied space difference shown in MoreSpace app and free space available value in Finder.

MoreSpace Functions:

  • Add Folder: Apply compression to selected folders.
  • Compress Mail: Open and select Mail folder and apply compression to mailboxes.
  • Refresh: Check selected compressed folder and reapply compression to modified and new files.
  • Decompress: Decompress all HFS+ compressed files in folder and remove from list.

MoreSpace Features

  • HFS+ compression has the best effect on uncompressed file formats like text and data documents, databases and mailboxes. A typical Mail mailbox size can be reduced up to 50%.
