windows 7 bootmgr compressed Help

I used the windows option to compress files on the c drive since i was low on space and it apparently compressed the boot mgr as well i have the recovery disk or repair disck and can boot with that but it doesnt tell me how to uncompress the bootmgr I can get into c: with the recovery cd and it tests everythink as ok i dont have a previus recovery point that helps the only one is apparently after the compression.

Help Please how do i uncompress bootmgr and where is it stored?

Try running "compact.exe /u C:\bootmgr" from the commandline in the recovery cd
