SQL Error – SQL Server Installation fails | Attributes do not match. Present attributes (Directory, Compressed, NotContentIndexed)…


 
Few days back I got this query from a developer who was trying to install SQL Server, it was not getting installed and was giving below error:

Microsoft.SqlServer.Configuration.Sco.DirectoryAttributesMissmatch: Attributes do not match. Present attributes (Directory, Compressed, NotContentIndexed) , included attributes (0), excluded attributes (Compressed, Encrypted).


 

–> RCA: As the above error message mentions that the Directory is Compressed, it gives you an idea that the SQL Server installation is not supported on compressed drives. So, if you are installing SQL Server on a drive which has compression enabled it will give you this error.
 

–> Fix: You have to check the Drive properties and see if Compression is enabled, like shown below and un-compress it by un-checking the option.
