Can exchange folder under program files be comppressed?

Due to lack of drive space, I compressed the whole program files. but the problem is the information store won't mount. I restart the exchange services, reboot the server, but no luck.

Can anyone help me?


Thanks in advance.

I am decompressing now.

Meanwhile, since the drive space is very tight on C drive. Can I copy the EDB and STm file to
D drive and then mount it?
