Compressed Files? (Blue Filename Text)


OSNN Addict
I don't have the "Compress drive to save disk space" option checked and the "Compress old files" is set at 500 days since it can't be set any higher but I have lots of filenames with blue text which indicates Windows XP /w XP2 has been compressing them.

How can I uncompress them and prevent this from happening in the future?

In networking we learned that windows just does that on its own even if it is unchecked. Know one really knows why it does that but it just does.
Windows apparently does something like this to my c drive as it's only 5 gigs (yes too small, I know) and still keeps around 1 gig free despite getting filled with alla kinds of stuff, temp files and so on.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
