Full backup too long
Last modified: 2013-08-18 14:31:17 CEST
I have installed Zextra backup to add hot-backup of 400Gb of data
(3 000 000 files):
The full backup is very very long:
When I check the data, it seems they are compressed using gzip.
Maybe in future version, an option like "compress using lzo" or "no compression" could be a good way to speed up the first full backup?
If this is not possible, an option like "rebuild full backup using smartbackup" could be a good way to speed up the process :-)

how much time it will take to complete
1/Change compression for LZO or "no compression"
2/Change the backup mechanism: avoid transfer of small files
(less than 20Mb): maybe a "database like" store could be
a good solution? It's far better when we upload files to a
Thank you for your help :)
