A larger hard drive has been installed on our server running Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2, the system hard drive, volume c.  We now wish to turn off the feature for "Compressing drive to save disk space."  Is there any repercussion for making this change?  Is it as simple as "unchecking the box?"
