    If this has been answered before, sorry I haven't found it.

    Is there a way to stop windows from compresssing unused files? Tired of doing it with disk cleanup and seeing blue files.

    Thanks Nams I did the regedit so it doesnt show up in disk cleanup anymore. But this also means that any future compression is gone right?
