Public Service Reminder: Don’t Compress your SQL Server Folders

I have a couple of smaller machines that get ‘repaved’ from time to time and fairly consistently I need to compress some of the hard drives because of low disk space, and fairly consistently, I forget that SQL Server doesn’t like this, and so am fairly consistently momentarily confused when random SQL Server patches through Windows Update fail.

And then I fairly consistently uncompress them and everything is fine.

Fairly consistently.

HTH.
