I cannot find a configuration variable to turn compress file one exit "on" by default for new and existing users. Does one exist or doe sit have to be manually activated?

HI Samir or anyone else!
Can you tell me if this "Preferences" COMPRESS_OPTIONS was ever added to MicroStation CE Update 10 or over?
If it was, what is the name of the variable?
If not, why?
Would it be possible to get someone from Bentley to review and update this article with all new and removed ConfigVars?
Just noticed that it has been 3 years since it was last updated.
The way we do this ATM is to use the AutoRun vba and compress the file using the OnDesignFileClosed section. There are a number of variables in packages that we cannot lock so we use this as a way for circumvent user fiddling and to run some house keeping tools.
in the old days we cad leads and mstn cad managers could compress folders from the microstation manager tool had an option to compress dgs or folders.. .was very handy to run this once a week over project folders.. we don't seem to have that option anymore in v8i...
..ok found it ask Inga
Shift esc in mstn manager switches over the different view to give the option under directory to compress, merge etc folder contents
but you have to close it to return to the windows looking dialog..
