Someone at my job (a sysadmin) actually performed a "cleanup" task on WinXP which at the same time compressed all the files on my HDD with the Windows compressed file attribute (Filenames get blue in Windows Explorer)
I don't actually need my files to be compressed, and I think it can also affect the performance of my PC.
I tried searching for files, selecting them with Windows explorer and deselecting the checkbox to uncompress them, but just getting the "Properties" window for 160,000 files is impossible.
Someone have an idea about this ? A .bat file to do the job ?
