I started off Windows XP's disk compression utility and not long after it started, I got the following message: ______________________________________ "Error Applying Attributes An error occurred while applying attributes to the file: ....\7a436fe806e48396f48a894af2fe9a1_99eeeoc3-2ff-4e1 Access is denied.
