That folder is not compressed. I think the issue is that there are a
lot of small files/empty directories which are taking up a full
allocation unit on the filesystem.

I changed some windows settings last night, will see if it impvoes.
I've already had last-access-time turned off.

I have tested this with a couple of raptors on another pc and the update
times are more reasonable. I guess it's time for a drive upgrade (or
delete all those empty folders).
