You're right. With client Win 10 and Windows 2003 Server, I see size=998KB and size on disk=1MB. With Win 10 and Server 2012 I see size=98KB and size on disk=124KB.

So yes, it should be possible to do what you want. Whether it's easy, I don't know.

There have been times I've been looking for space, and it would have been good to know the files I was deleting were compressed and not making as much difference as I thought.

Accessing it via Alt-I would be good enough for me, but being able to toggle it to use size on disk everywhere might occasionally be useful.
