Hmph. that's a tough one, i honestly don't know if there is a way to undo this, do you have your windows 7 install disc? if so you can try running a windows repair.

After you click on the repair option, you'll be given a list of the operating systems you have installed on your computer. The window that displays the OS options also has a button to click labeled "load drivers". (or something to that effect...) Once you click on that, it will open an explorer window that shows you all of the hard drives on your machine. Right click the one that is compressed, select properties, uncheck the box for compression, click "apply" and then wait. This may take a while.

Good luck/.
