did you compress your c drive? sounds like you have, I think you may need to do a re-install.
One thing that may work, would be to install the drive in qustion as a second drive on another machine and you may be able to uncheck the compress disk contents box that way.

How to Recover Windows XP Password with Password Reset Disk?


Windows XP not only allows you to set a strong password to protect your computer, but also enables you to create a password reset disk to recover Windows XP password. So if you forgot Windows XP password, it is no need for you to reinstall computer. However, Windows XP has been released for several years and used by majority PC users, but there are still some PC users do not know how to create a password reset disk. Here I will show you how to create and use Windows XP password reset disk to help you to perform Windows XP password recovery.

To create a Windows XP password reset disk, you need to prepare a USB flash drive in advance before you follow the steps to create a password reset disk on Windows XP.

Step 1: Click Start button to select Control Panel.

Step 2: Click User Account on the following Windows screen.

Step 3: Select the User Account you want to create password reset disk for.

Step 4: Click Prevent a forgotten password.

Step 5: The Windows Password reset wizard will come up, Click Next.

Step 6: Insert your USB drive in computer. The next box will say Create a Password Reset Disk and ask you to insert your blank formatted disk in your floppy drive. Click the Next button.

Step 7: Enter your password at the Current User Account Password Box and click Next.

Step 8: Windows XP will create the password reset disk. When the progress indicator shows 100% complete, click Next.

Step 9: Click Finish when the forgotten password wizard box prompts you to do so.

When the Windows XP password reset disk is created, a file named userkey.psw will appear on your USB flash drive. You only need to create a disk for your Windows XP login password once. No matter how many times you change your password, this disk will always allow you to create a new one. Please remember to keep it in a safe location. And when you forget your password, you can use this USB flash drive to recover Windows XP password. Below are the Windows XP password recovery steps.

Step 1: Start your computer to enter the Windows XP log on screen.

Step 2: Type an incorrect password in the Password box, and then press Enter.

Step 3: In the following Logon Failed dialog box, click use your password reset disk. The Password Reset Wizard starts.

Step 4: On the Welcome to the Password Reset Wizard page, click Next.

Step 5: Insert the password reset disk, and then click Next.

Step 6: On the Reset the User Account Password page, type a new password twice.

Step 7: In the Type a new password hint box, type a hint, click Next, then click Finish.

Now your Windows XP password has been reset. You can log on your computer with the new password. And if forget to create a password reset disk, you can still perform Windows XP password recovery with Windows password recovery software like Windows Login Recovery. It can help you recover Windows XP password by burning a bootable CD / DVD or USB flash drive. In addition to perform Windows XP Password recovery, it can also help you recover Windows administrator password, standard user password on Windows 7 / Vista / Server 2008 / 2003, etc.

SUMMARY SUMMARY

SUMMARY
Compressing files, folders, and programs decreases their size and reduces the amount of space they use on your volumes or removable storage devices. Volume compression decreases the amount of space that is used by all of the files and folders that are stored on that volume. Because of a potential loss of performance, you may not want to compress some files.
back to the top
NTFS Compression
NTFS compression is available on volumes that use the NTFS file system, and NTFS compression has the following features and limitations:
• You can use NTFS compression to compress individual files and folders, as well as an entire NTFS volume.
• You can compress a folder without compressing its contents.
• You can work with NTFS-compressed files without decompressing them, because they are decompressed and recompressed without user intervention.
• You can display NTFS-compressed file and folder names in a different color to make them easier to identify.
• You may notice a decrease in performance when you work with NTFS-compressed files. When you open a compressed file, Windows automatically decompresses it for you, and when you close the file, Windows compresses it again. This process may decrease your computer performance.
• NTFS-compressed files and folders only remain compressed while they are stored on an NTFS Volume.
• You cannot encrypt an NTFS-compressed file.

Compressing an NTFS Volume
You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure. To compressing an NTFS volume:
1. Click Start, then click My Computer.
2. Right-click the volume you want to compress, and then click Properties.
3. On the General tab, click to select the Compress Volume to save disk space check box, and then click OK.
4. In Confirm Attribute Changes, click the option you want.

Compressing Files or Folders on NTFS Volume
To compress a file or folder:
1. Click Start, and then click My Computer.
2. Double-click the NTFS Volume that contains the folder or folders you want to compress.
3. Right-click the file or folder you want to compress, and then click Properties.
4. On the General tab, click Advanced.
5. Click to select the Compress contents to save disk space check box, and then click OK.
6. In the Properties dialog box, click OK.
7. In Confirm Attribute Changes, click the option you want.
NOTE: If you move or copy a file into a compressed folder, it is compressed automatically. If you move a file from a different NTFS Volume into a compressed folder, it is also compressed. However, if you move a file from the same NTFS Volume into a compressed folder, the file retains its original state, either compressed or uncompressed.

Displaying Compressed Files in Color
You can change the display of files and folders that are compressed in Windows Explorer and My Computer, so it is easy to see them. To display compressed files in color:
1. Double-click Folder Options in Control Panel.
2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
3. Click Appearance and Themes, and then click Folder Options.
4. On the View tab, click to select the Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in color check box.

I am having the same difficulties as you!

If you have compressed the hard disk drive using the Compress drive to save disk space option under the Properties menu for your hard disk drive and have performed a non-destructive recovery or a system recovery, the following error message may appear: NTLDR is compressed. Press CRTL-ALT-DEL to restart. This error message is resolved by following these steps:
  1. Insert the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD into the CD drive on the computer and restart the computer.Wait for the HP Recovery Tools CD or Compaq Recovery Tools CD window to open.
  2. Select Run Microsoft Recovery Console , click Next , and then follow the onscreen instructions. NOTE: If you are unable to open a recovery console, follow the Alternate steps .
  3. Press R to repair the Windows XP installation using Recovery Console.
  4. Enter the appropriate number for the WINDOWS installation, for example, the WINDOWS installation could be listed as 3: C:\WINDOWS or 3: D:\WINDOWS .
  5. If prompted, enter your Administrator password and press Enter . If there is no password, just press Enter .
  6. At the prompt, if the WINDOWS installation you selected in Step 4 was C:\WINDOWS, type: cd c:\Or, if the WINDOWS installation you selected in Step 4 was D:\WINDOWS, type: cd d:\
  7. At the prompt, type: attrib -c ntldr and then press Enter .
  8. At the prompt, type: exit
  9. Press the Enter key and immediately remove all discs or diskettes from the computer to allow the computer to restart.The error message should be resolved.
Alternate steps NOTE: These alternate steps work for HP and Compaq desktop PCs with Windows XP and a recovery partition. (M0st HP and Compaq PCs with Windows XP have a recovery partition on the hard disk drive.) These steps do not work if you have replaced the hard disk drive, replaced Windows with another operating system, or repartitioned the recovery partition.You can use the following steps if you are unable to open a recovery console:
  1. Turn on the computer. When the initial logo screen appears, press the F10 key repeatedly until a message about starting recovery appears.
  2. At the Recovery screen, click Advanced Options and then press the Alt and D keys at the same time to go to a command prompt.
  3. At the command prompt, enter the following: diskpart
  4. At the command prompt, enter the following: list volume
  5. Remember the drive letter next to line for the main hard drive; HP_PAVILION or PRESARIO.
  6. To close Diskpart, enter the following: exit
  7. At the command prompt, enter the drive letter followed by a colon (:). For example, H:
  8. At the command prompt, enter the following: cd \windows\system32
  9. At the command prompt, type the following: compact ntldr /u <the drive letter>:\ntldr For example if the drive letter was H, you would type: compact ntldr /u h:\ntldr
  10. Type exit and press Enter .
  11. Click Quit .The error message should be resolved.

Need to format a maxtor/seagate internal hard drive but only have a 1.44MB floppy disk is there a way to compress the seatools file?


If you have a bootable CD/Install disk, it will have the tools for formatting a drvice built in.
For example. If you have a Windows XP install CD, boot to the CD, and part of the install routine is to delete/create and format partitions.
