I recently saw that a lot of files and folder in the whole file sytem are with the compressed flag activated. This includes files and folders inside Documents and Settings, C:\Windows, C:\Windows\System32, etc.

What could be the cause of this? Some time ago we ran very short in disk space in this server.

In windows counters, we are also seeing high page file per seconds. This wasn't normal until some weeks ago. I think it is related.

How can I revert this for all files and folders in the the drive and what could possible cause this?
