Windows 2K3 or Dell zipping up log files by itself?!?

**** PLEASE HELP! *****
Recently, our servers started to zip up log (text) files all by itself. No schedule task could be found, no automated task running. Eventhough the extension are *.zip, we can not extract the information from the file to look at the logs.... Does anyone know if this is a feature of Windows 2K3?? or something far more sinister?
All the server is running it Apache/Tomcat and servlets.
The files are around 30MB each and takes up around 200 files in the folder (so around 6GB in th folder).
The servers are Dells 2950 and plenty of space on the drive in question - I had assume it may have been a space-saving feature of windows.
