I might wish to allow HFS+ compression for a listing, making use of it to each the present information in that listing and newly copied information. I anticipate to have the ability to learn and write the contents of that listing usually.
Does HFS+ deal with non-compressible information intelligently, say by attempting to compress the primary few KB of the file and bailing if it would not compress? I do not need non-compressible information increasing or their entry considerably slowed down by compression and de-compression.
Is that this doable to do out of the field in Yosemite? I am additionally open to putting in a third-party app (even a command-line one) to allow the compression, if I can then uninstall it later and have the listing retain the compression.
afsctool, however it hasn’t had a launch or replace in an 12 months and a half, and I do not wish to use unmaintained software program. Apart from,
afsctool works just for present information, not newly copied ones.
