The little monsters have found a new ruse, enabling compression on a read only directory! Obviously when a few of them do it in a room the server soon bogs down. They have traverse, list and read rights only yet they can still enact a compress entire contents! This also works on their network shares which have the same NTFS security.
Is there a way of disabling compression on the server side? I dont mind switching it off as there are very few compressed folders (probably ones I havent found yet).
I have looked in GPOs to disable on the client but can find nothing.
any ideas? Has anyone come up against something similar?

i'll reboot it tonight and see if that sorts it (which it should after googling the command).
To confirm; this works. Existing compressed folders are still compressed and accessible. No further compression is allowed although you can still uncompress a previously compressed folder (phew!).
