    Hey guys,

    I've got a custom image that I've built in a virtual machine that I'm deploying to a pile of PCs which works great, but I have a machine with only a 32GB SSD. I can make it fit, but it would be really nice if there was a bit of extra space available. I also have a tablet with 16GB storage that I'd like to install it too if possible.

    I was wondering if there is any way to convert an existing, standard installation of Windows 10 to one that uses a compressed WIMBOOT image? Any advice on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks guys. I did a search and couldn't find anything but it seems my Google-Fu is weak. I'll give that a go!
