The compression ratio will depend on the data contained in the compressed files, there is no general or average value. In some cases, there will hardly be any compression e.g. when the files are already compressed, others (e.g. sparse files) might be compressed up to 99%. YMMV.

I agree. I think it is using something similr to zip compression, but you would need to test and compare.

Text files should compress well.

I hope this helps !
