Options for HDD in Windows properties box

When you look at the Properties dialogue box for a hard disk in Windows, you get two options at the bottom:

- Compress this drive to save disk space
- Index this drive for faster searching

Will enabling the compression impact HDD performance?

Will enabling the Indexing here affect Vista responsiveness? I have already stopped the Windows Search service (and Explorer seems slightly more responsive as a result), but if I enable this will it turn the service back on?
