I have had XP for a while now and i am noticing that some of my files and starting to get blue file names, instead of the usual black. I figured that it just meant that they were files that had not been opened or used in a while, but im not sure. Anybody know what this means?

Blue file names in XP means that the file has been compressed to save space.
