While using the Disk Cleanup tool, I noticed that a lot of disk space was being used by something called ‘compress files’. I wasn’t familiar with this option, so I checked it out and learned that it allows you to compress files on the C drive.

I tried to stop the process halfway through, but some files had already been compressed. Is there a way to use PowerShell or another software to locate these compressed folders/files and decompress them, or to at least identify which folders are compressed?
