Changing a XP folder's name text colour

One day I came to work and suddenly all my folder texts were in ugly blue, rather than black. Being intolerant to changes (that I have not done on purpose), I eventually figured out how to fix the problem:

You can then set your folder view to display compressed folders in blue (Tools, Folder Option, View, Show encrypted or compressed NTFS files in colour)

It will only slow things down a little as the operating system has to decompress the data when accessing it. Never seen it corrupt data.

Thanks to toms hardware for making me sleep better at night.. :)
