    don't do that.

    If you care about size of the installed OS, first compress it using the old NTFS compression.
    Then capture the image in a WIM.

    Then restore/deploy the image using wimlib-imagex apply with the -compact=LZX switch.

    Compact OS alone is stupid as MS implemented it, at least the 30 Y/O NTFS compression mitigates its drawbacks (while retaining most of its strengths).

    Who mentioned performance? (which anyway comes as a bonus usually)
