Windows is smart to compress the dump for WER

So I just get one service crashed, and it is a huge dump!!!(3.2GB if you want to know)
As it is huge, I wonder where it is, so I open C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue and check for it.
The normal blue color is showing to me.  ;)

PS:If you don't understand what is the meaning of blue color, it means that the folders/files is compressed, by using the NTFS own compress feature. :)
Little tips, after you installed update, TiWorker.exe will also compress the old backup files, and this backup files can be delete.
But you should delete them after a month the update is installed, before you installed another update again, so you can uninstall the update if anything happen. ;)
