I was catching up on some recent posts and came across first this and then this thread on lossless compression.

I didn't understand what the lossless algorithm did initially and consequently have been storing my raw images using uncompressed storage (the second post explains lossless compression in understandable terms). since the advantage of lossless compression is nearly 2:1 for an average image in terms of storage space with no loss of information and with perhaps a small penalty for time when opening in post, i am planning on switching to lossless compression.

I'm curious on what choices others have made for their storage and am curious about what others perceive as the pros and cons? and, finally, can i compress an uncompressed image after the fact using Nikon's algorithm?
