I stupidly decided to compress my main HD because it was filling up quickly. I had to leave it going overnight because it was taking forever.The next day when I tried booting up, I get the message

"XILEY IS COMPRESSED"
"PRESS CNTRL ALT DELETE TO RESTART"

I'm not sure what I did to cause this or how to rectify it. I don't know what XILEY is either and couldn't find anything about it. At the moment the only option I can see is installing a new copy of windows ontop of my already almost full HD, which I'd like to avoid. Unfortunately I don't have a restore point to use or anything like that.

This is w7

Welcome,

I'm going to assume that you have only one HDD and that is the one you compressed. What program did you use to compress it?

If a reinstall is the solution don't worry about the drive being full. The reinstall process will reformat the drive so that it is clean and then install the OS again.

Keep us posted

I simply did the compression through the properties menu when right clicking the hdd
