This is a no-brainer 5 stars from me. I set Clusters to compress everything except for system files. To date, I've saved 50.4 GB on a 500GB hd. 50 GB!!! I've transferred all files and applications from a previous mac to a new MBP without hiccup. All compressed files still work as usual. I only allow clusters to run while plugged in, and I pause it when I need the extra RAM. Granted, the original Macbook these files started on, was running OSX Tiger, which I believe doesn't use the HFS+ file compression. In moving all of these files to a new MBP system and allowing clusters to do it's thing, the space savings is jaw-dropping. Your results may vary if you start on a HFS+ compressed system. Absolutely no complaints here.
