.. and im wondering why.

this occured in my ftp's upload directory. several files were blue. properties revealed nothing, they werent "in use" or anything. it isnt a life threatening problem, but it'd be nice to know what it means.

Go to Folders Options > view > uncheck "Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color.

BTW- *ARE* your MP3s all compressed by NTFS? Just because MP3s are, by defintion, compressed music files, doesnt mean they were compressed by NTFS. Those are two different things. Only the files specifically compressed or encrypted by NTFS are shown in blue, if this is what your talking about.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
