    Hi folks!

    I got an error with wimlib and i cannot resolve it so i thank that you can help me in this case.

    So the situation is following:
    I captured a wim file from a Windows 8.1 install (virtual hd) with fast compression and i want to try to compress it with wimlib with --compress:lzx switch. It does its job but when compressing it detects the uncompressed folder size wrongly.
    In gimagex the wim unexpanded size: ~10 Gb in wimlib 6,5GB. After compressing neither gimagex nor dism can't read the exprted wim file. Thanks for your help in advance. :)

    Does anybody ever met this kind of error?

    P.s. sorry if i wrote in wrong topic

    the correct parameter would be --compress=lzx or --compress=maximum

    as for the uncompressed size, wimlib gives the actual size of expanded data
    whereas imagex adds the hardlinked data size
