    HI. My .HDD file is now 30 GB, even though I only use about 5GB. How do I decrease the size?

    A couple questions on Compressor:
    1. Is Compressor supposed to take a long time?
    My virtual drive is only 14GB in size, but is 60GB in real size. I've been running Compressor for most of this day...and it's like the Energizer Bunny--it's still going?
    2. Does it require a double amount of disk space, like Parallels image does when it defrags? I only have 12GB free on the drive with this 60GB image on it. I'm wondering when it finally compresses down, is it going to write a temp file that will just fill up my drive?

    I would recommend eliminating or merging snapshots before compression.
