I was asking if some one had an example? When I enable volume wide
compression, it returns true, or no errors, but when I look in the
explorer view, neither the color change for the disk label is done,
aka different color for compressed volumes, nor is the check box under
properties checked showing the given volume is compressed.

I am trying via a .NET application, mimic what FORMAT.COM does with
the /C option. Where disk or volume whide compression is enabled.

Hello Dachshund,

I understand, but I have to say I've never tried doing that and I can't
help you with anything solid. It seems clear that your approach of doing
things doesn't do exactly the same thing that happens when compression is
activated via the UI setting - maybe if you post the code you're currently
using, somebody will be able to point out what the problem is.

Hard to tell when you don't tell us what you are actually doing in code and on what drive
(existing/new).
So, please post your code.
