Hi all,

When I am performing an archive on a Infomix database (ontape -s), the backup is saved on a 35GB tape.  

I am wondering if there's any way to compress the data during the archiving process so that more free space on the tape can be saved.

Thanks!!

Normally, any backup software does already the compression while writing to tapes...
I am quite sure that Informix does also have a switch to compress the data before it is send to the tape, but i don't know Informix at all...
