Hello, my backup directory is getting filled... I do not have a lot of drive space I can add to this directory, so in the interim before I get more disk space, I am thinking of adding the -zip option to the zmbackup cron job.
I have read a few articles on it, but none that seem to answer the following three questions:
Does your server take a significant performance hit for this operation? Does it vastly increase backup time?
The most important question I have is this: Do I have to change anything else, or will the system be ok with it (for example, I go to restore someones mail... do I need to go unzip that blob by hand, or will Zimbra automagically do it?).
Thanks in advance.
