This will proberbly have cause a laugh to a few of you out there, I have a laptop and after a few years have gone by I now find my self running a bit low of space on the hard drive and began compressing the C drive, I seamed to take hrs but I got an extra 5 gig and was very pleased. A few months down the line and I am experimenting with 2005 SQL Server and I cant setup any new databases as all the files are compressed. Now I feel a bit foolish.

any Ideas anybody.

this is what I get when I try to create a new database.

TITLE: Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio

Create failed for Database 'blabla'. (Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo)

An exception occurred while executing a Transact-SQL statement or batch. (Microsoft.SqlServer.ConnectionInfo)


The file "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.2\MSSQL\DATA\blabla.mdf" is compressed but does not reside in a read-only database or filegroup. The file must be decompressed.
CREATE DATABASE failed. Some file names listed could not be created. Check related errors. (Microsoft SQL Server, Error: 5118)
