I have never touched the compress old files on a serve, under disk cleanup. On pc's I do it all the time with no harm.
I'm always leary about deleting anything off one of my main servers, becuase of the implications it can have.

If you check the Compress Old File option, your server will not delete anything, instead, it will compress the aging files (over a year or so) to save space. It does the same thing for both client and server.
