I tried a test where I created a 1MB text file containing lots of letter a's (very compressible), put a copy on a local hard drive and on a server drive, and applied NTFS compression to each.

Ztree can see the compression attribute of both the local and server files.

Explorer can see that the local file really only takes up 124KB on the disk, but can't see the true size of the compressed file on the server.

Perhaps the true size isn't available over the network?
