My backup area has more than enough storage space, so I am interested in potentially improving my backup time but turning off compression. In the mailserver.cfg I see:

<table name="Backup">
<variable name="Compress">1</variable>

Can anyone confirm that setting this variable to 0 would simply disable the zip compression of the backup files without any other negative side effects?

I will test it if need be, but I am hoping someone else has gone through the effort before me!

Afaik it does disable the compression, but that won't make much sense. Kerio only saves the new files, not everything. So with 1k mails a day our 8 year old server needs less then 5 minutes for the backup. And you do a daily backup I suppose. The files are zipped with multicore usage and really fast. Also does limit you network bandwidth (if there is more stuff running).

Not to mention, that compressed, big files are always better then many small ones. Also works with deduplication Smile
