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 Windows 7 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 Windows 7 drive, choose Properties, untick the box for compressing files on the drive. Click Apply, back out of the Repair console, Windows 7 should start on Reboot.
