Why Do NTFS Compressed Files Get Lost and What Can You Do About It?
Modern NT-based systems work with compressed files in a special format. These NTFS-compressed files are more complicated to recover than regular file folders. Compressed files take less disk space than the usual files. NTFS-compressed files use the same algorithm as ZIP archives do and thus they can store more information on less disk space.
What if your hard drive is the only location of your photos, music, email and other compressed files? Thus, Windows should ask an existential question: "To send or not to send… an error report?" Even though an NTFS file system promises automatic recovery of its compressed files, it's better to have a backup plan.
