I want to enable IIS 6 compression for all of the folders in my application except one; in this one folder, I do some things that fails when IIS 6 compression is enabled...

Any advice? Thanks.

So don't compress any of the folders.

Well, then I don't get the benefit of compression; I would like that benefit, but I can't figure out how to even enable or disable compression for a single folder... – Brian Mains Jun 17 '10 at 14:09
Compression has two cons: it slows things down, and some applications break when Windows file compression is enabled. – mcandre Jun 21 '10 at 15:34
