Its likely you clicked all folders and compressed, for extra disk storage.
If so, a similar error occurred to me. Search my threads, i'm sorry i can't post a link, i'm very busy. the title is bootmgr is compressed.

Boot critical files are compressed. In order to fix this, boot the WIn7 Repair CD or install DVD, select "Repair My Computer," on System Recovery Options click "Load Drivers," then OK, now when the mini-explorer opens up, click on Computer, then rightclick on Win7 drive, choose Properties, untick the box for compressing files on the drive. Click Apply, back out of the Repair console, Win7 should start on Reboot.
