No!

Do not compress your C: drive!

You would find the computer will not boot, with the message "MBR is compressed"

Why does Windows even have that option anymore? It barely made sense back in the days of 10GB hard drives, but why would anyone need to do that today? A legacy "feature" that should be hidden deep in the bowels of the system!
