One day, double blue arrows appeared on all my files and folders!

 

Out of the blue!

 

I googled and it says it means they are compressed.

 

But I didn't compress them and the "compress files and folders" option on my drive is not checked.

 

How do I uncompress them?

 

Thanks for any ideas!
