Unless your hopelessly out of disk space then I say zero compression and just do regular defrag on spinners only.

In theory it's very minor and with today's processor power likely even more minor? I just think with today low cost storage solutions why compress?

And you are welcome to that position. For me why introduce algorithms to save space unless you're in desperate need.

Back in the day when a hard drive was small and cost as much as a good second hand car compression was needed.
Those conditions no longer apply.
Another concern would be corruption or loss of data.
Any time you move data, compress data, change data, ect. their is always a chance of corruption or loss of data.
Why do something that is not needed and take the risk?

Processor may not feel the load, but it's still additional time that adds up to the total loading/response times. Not really recommended.
