Do you mean it would relog the drive, but only the compressed files?

I agree, but I was thinking just adding it to Alt-I would be a simple thing that could be added without fuss.

I would also like to see alt-K able to show dir totals using the compressed sizes. One needs to know the compressed totals in order to know how much space you'd gain by deleting them, and the uncompressed totals to know how much space they'd take up if you moved them to another drive, where they wouldn't be compressed. (I don't think they remain compressed when moved or copied. I haven't tried it.)
