Thanks for all of your help Brian. I'll use manual compaction next time. The new Compact Data appears to be in version 3.03 or later of Terabyte imaging programs. When I tried to download those versions, Terabyte only showed versions 2.9 that I could download using my Terabyte order number. I'll need to contact Terabyte to see if my order number limits my downloads to versions 2.9. I thought purchasing IFW allowed getting version updates for life.
But in this case doing a fresh install of Win10 using the Recovery Drive was probably better anyway. It allowed me to change from RAID to AHCI in the BIOS for my SSD before doing the fresh install.
