Hi,

If you run gdalinfo about your image you will notice that it is already
compressed:

Metadata:
  TIFFTAG_SOFTWARE=OrbitGIS 17.0.0
Image Structure Metadata:
  COMPRESSION=YCbCr JPEG
  INTERLEAVE=PIXEL
  SOURCE_COLOR_SPACE=YCbCr

However, one of your commands which is using actually the same parameters
does shrink the image from 465 MB into 170 MB. 

gdal_translate GTIFF_RAW:GAPS_2017-02-23.tif test2.tif -co 
PHOTOMETRIC=YCBCR -co TFW=YES -co TILED=YES -co BIGTIFF=IF_SAFER -co
COMPRESS=JPEG -a_srs EPSG:3414

For saving disk space I would consider cutting those areas which do have
real data into individual files and then combine them into a virtual mosaic
with gdalbuildvrt.  Empty space does compress rather well but not having any
pixels from areas with no data is most savvy option of all.
