    Hi these indicate compression:

    Compress or Uncompress Files and Folders in Windows 10 | Tutorials

    Note some users find their OS is compressed. Nothing to worry about.

    Thank you dalchina for your reply.

    Even though your reply gives me a bit of relief, I'm still concerned as to why it happened (especially after windows update) as I "never" intended/implemented file/folder level compress on any of my laptops.

    Should i proceed with the first link of solution as it states "This tutorial no longer works starting with Windows 10 version 1607." ?

    Hi, I removed the first one as you will see having noted that. I was editing the post as you read it...

    If you search the forum for
    compact OS
    or
    compressed OS
    for example, using advanced search for the last month, say, you will find discussion on compressing the OS and it happening 'randomly' for some.
