Disk Compression

By Terry Slavens ·
We are running Windows 2000 on our servers and our drives are NTFS.

Is there any way to disable disk/file compression?

Disk Compression

I know of no hack that can prevent a user from compressing a file. However, if you want to prevent users from putting compressed files on a file server see KB 327840.

We had already found this Q article.

What we want to be able to do is to go to Windows Explorer, right-click on a mapped drive, go to Properties and have the 'Compressed Drive to Save Disk Space' disabled for all users.

Any thoughts.

Hi,
you can set a group policy that removes this option for the users / OUs / domains / sites that have that specific GPO assigned to them.
Select the OU etc. that you want to assign the GPO to -> Properties -> Group Policies -> New ....

Hope that helps!
