The best thing about applying these attributes to folders is the automated behavior of NTFS which it shows towards the content which it shows towards the content which is inside them. Unless you selected the “Apply changes to this folder only” option when applying the attribute, NTFS would automatically compress any content you copy to the folder. Remember that both encryption and compression cannot go hand in hand with NTFS. This is majorly due to the way NTFS encrypts contents.
Notably, encryption is disabled when you copy an encrypted file from NTFS drives to FAT32 drives. Windows will automatically decrypt an encrypted file/folder when you copy or move it to a FAT32 drive (such as a USB drive).
