SQL Server + Disk Cleanup

A while ago I ran the Disk Cleanup utility on my personal notebook. Today I needed to start the SQL server on this machine so I attempt to start the service and I get this error in the Event Viewer

So I made sure that the drive wasn't compressed, and it wasn't then I looked at the file itself and it was. I'm guessing that the Disk Cleanup deal performed this, because I know that I wouldn't. To solve this you right-click on the file and make sure that the checkbox shown is not checked.

Once you make sure this is done, you should be able to start the service again.
