Decompression issue, what next?

  1. I needed to rebuild my computer as I was having errors. So instead of just fixing them I took the easy/lazy route and re installed windows.
    I moved everything that I wanted to keep onto my secondary drive, I didnt fancy downloading all my music from iTunes again.
    50gig + to download @ 400Kb/s I dont think so.

    Anyway, since rebuilding I have ticked ''Compress this drive to save disk space'' realizing this I have un-ticked the option and now I get errors on certain files.

    Almost all of the files have reverted to normal, the ones that haven't still have a blue name in windows explorer.

    What I can do with these files is:

    Move them anywhere on the same drive

    What I cannot do with these files:
    Copy
    move to a different disk
    decompress
    delete
    open them

    Some of the files are music files, some are documents. I do need the document, the music isnt so important as they can be downloaded again.

    I have tried everything I can think of and nothing,
    I need some help

    Hmm; I believe that
    will then allow you to
    the MOVE to a new folder will certainly decompress

    I tried this, and still nothing..
    I am now preforming a disk check now with both
    Automatically fix file system errors, and
    Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors, checked.
    I will report back if this works..

    any more suggestions?
