Since you have already been through the disk clean up program that created the compressed files, you will notice when you look through “Explore” (right click on Start and click on Explore) that all the file details (name, type etc.) are colored blue. This indicate that the files are compressed. You can go through these files and find the ones that you no longer need and you can delete them.
