Re: compressed files
Hello,

Compressed Files are those files which have not been accessed in the last XX
days. By default, XX is defined as 50 days. These files are compressed using
XP's NTFS compression to claim more space.

In Disk Cleanup, Compress Files is shown as the total space taken by all
files older than 50 days. This is why it may seem big as many applications
and games tend to install files which are not used. Or you may have
downloads lying around not accessed in the previous 90 days.

To free up space, start by removing games and programs that you don't need
in Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs

Delete downloads and documents that you don't need. Use CCleaner (
http://www.ccleaner.com/ ) free to clear temporary files.
