Because you have the Drive &/or Files set to Compress.
Right Click the Drive or Files that are Blue and uncheck Compress to Save Drive Space. Unless you have it set to Compress.

Usually by default some files in the Windows folder are set to be compress to prevent it from taking up an abnormal amount of room. If other files are blue then that really is NOT a problem. However if you are low on disk space. I would recomend compressing the entire hard drive.

If you do compress the entire hard drive, you'll probably get a message saying some files can not get compressed, just like "ignore."
