Re: Agree but...

Not necessarily true. Though the CPU will have to decompress the file first (piece of cake for most CPU), it will have a smaller file to work on which more is significant since reading large file is slower than decompression.

Use lossless compressed, at least.

You do have a solid and verifiable reason for making these statements? Yes?

About as solid as it gets: I've developed compression/decompression code for use in flight control computers. Lossless means precisely that: There is no difference between the original uncompressed data, and the data that comes back from the decompression process. If there was any difference - even a single bit - Boeing 777 airplanes wouldn't be flying.

I agree, however there is one difference. Because if you select uncompressed your pc doesn't have to work as hard to uncompress the file, it makes editing programs go faster, worth noting.
