Yes. Compression is taken care of by Windows at a very low level. Cygwin
is a layer over Windows. Cygwin will never know the difference.
BTW: Wouldn't that be wanted?
I think of something like chattr, applied to NTFS.
Now that we have chattr in e2fsprogs, wouldn't that be a wanted
addition to recognize NTFS also, for chattr and lsattr. Otherwise it's
another e2fsprogs nameclash. Because I cannot think of a better name
to modify the NTFS index and compression flags, and in the future for
the extended WinFS capabilities.
chattr [+-]c would be quite easy to add.
SamRobb, Do you knwo if tytso thought about that? Anyway, I filed a
RFE at sf.net For the other flags I don't know the WinAPI that good.
I don't understand why you would expect something called e2fsprogs to
manipulate NTFS file systems.
I might expect something called lsattr and chattr to work with the
current filesystem. regardless if it's in a e2fsprogs package or
It works with ext3, debugfs, reiserfs and other filesystems also, not
