    I recently transfered all my media files ( movies and music) from 2 - 250Gb drives to one 750Gb drive to have a main media drive for a computer im putting together (as the older drives are IDE and the new one is Sata)

    however when doing a disk clean up and defrag alot of the files have changed from regular black text to blue text...im wondering if those fragmented/corrupt files or what? i can still play them and use them im just curious if its something i should find a fix for or what?

    i have plenty of copies of my files but its strange that alot of them have this after doing a disk clean up of compressed files.


    thanks!

    When you did the disk cleanup you probably selected the "compress old files" option. The blue files are compressed. You might ind that these files take slightly longer to open than non-compressed ones.
