Question xp compressing

Hi there.
I wanted to convert my NTFS partition in Fat32, with Partition MAgic....and after reboot i had an error.
The PQ cabn't convert because some files or folders may be compressed.
You know how can i disable the compresion in xp?..i saw after i uncheck "File is ready for archiving" and "compress contets to save disk space" after a while is back with blue color.
You think this is the reason i can't convert the partition?
I know i can convert in another way, but i don't want to lose my data.
