    I'll go with B. My understanding is that compressed files must always be uncompressed before being read or written to.

    Ill go with A
    I believe that the whole point of windows 2000 compression was to make the procedure invisible to the end user, and the OS should handle all compression/decompression, so no external programs should be required

    B for me.

    One of the features of the NTFS file system. I think. Now I'm starting to doubt myself. Walk AWAY from the question, Gav ...... :eek:

    Answer time folks

    Sorry Gav you should have listened to your own advice :cry:

    Correct answer is: A

    Explanation: According to the official MS 215 Training Kit: Compressed files can be read by and written to any Windows-based or MS-DOS-based application without first being uncompressed by another program. When an application, such as Microsoft Word for Windows, or an operating system command, such as copy, requests access to a compressed file, NTFS automatically uncompresses the file before making it available. When you close or explicitly save a file, NTFS compresses it again.

    I knew the minute Ryan posted his answer that I had hosed myself. Gav and I must have been thinking the same thing about NTFS compression but I took a closer look at the question and it says "without first being uncompressed by another program" and the answer became clear. Good one.
