If I change the backup compression in sp_configure to 1 (0 is default), will it use compression on all backups?

Thanks,

Mary

Hi Mary

It seems as if your version number is later than mine. If it is the developer version then it should work no problem.

If you change the setting and have reconfigured then on the properties of the server should display the server setting

Thanks

I noticed that during SQL2008 backup with compression, the backup file size is doubled until the backup is completed. For example, a database sized 10 GB with the final backup file 2 GB, the actual size (space used) during the backup is 4 GB.

This means we need double the space for the backup operation.

Does anyone experience the same? What is the story behind?

It is not 20-30% for all.
my data base has 50 GB size and after compression in sql2008 , the backup file has 32GB.
and another DB has 20 GB - backup file has 12 GB....
so about 60% for some databases

Thanks and regards,
Ashkan

I like this feature very much.

when i was using sql 2005, that time i was thinking about such feature. Finally Microsoft listen about it and provide it in sql 2008.

i found only two drawbacks.

1. Using more CPU.
2, While restoring database, it'll take more time other then normal backup.


But i m ok with all these... finally it's saving my drive's valuable space...

Thanks
