- Nov 21, 2012Steve you just have a small map set...and perhaps smaller disks.. on my 119 gig drive I'm closer to 40-50% of wasted space. Don't mind losing 3 gig of space to go portable with any of my map sets, but would be nice to put it to other uses.

I just did a quick test by zipping my OSM directory, you don’t save any space from a file size point of view, but with 22MB of files, size on disk dropped from 27MB to 22MB, so it is worth considering some sort of “packing” for a 20% reduction in disk space used. (I rounded the figures)

Not that I know of, but if someone wants to take the time to track down
such a "container file" approach for Windows Mobile (and optionally
WinCE, but that's much more unlikely), I'd be glad to learn of it.
