Compressing backup files a smart idea?
Posted on 2008-10-30
My backup server is out of space and can no longer perform backups. Tried to compress the files but each attempt was not successful. It would just quit after 30 mins. I believe it is because the backup drive is completely full.
So my question is; does compressing the backup files effect any server functions such exchange/mail and synchronizing works by each workstation.
and is there any way to compress the drive now that i am not able to when (right click on drive, properties, and disk clean up
