Command-line cmd to set folder compression ON

I need a  Command-line cmd for XP to set folder compression ON.

I've been getting by with having a "Master Folder" lying around that has encryption turned on thru the nice GUI.  Nice grren check mark.  Then if I use "XCOPY" to copy that folder, the new folder has the same check mark.  I think I had to add some strange /A option to have it copy attrributes.

Works fine when copying to the main disk.

Doesnt copy the attributes when copying to a network disk!   Arggggh!

Surely there's some command to make a directory and set its compression attributes?

Thanks,

George
