tar.gz ?

Hi,

Thanks for this really great tool!

I would like to tar.gz after a backup. Is this possible with XSIBackup-Free?
I thought about compressing the folders etc but I'm not sure how that would react when XSIBackup thinks it's time to remove old backups.

Thanks!

Re: tar.gz ?

You can compress if you want, but you'll have to implement that on your own via a separate script/process.
XSIBACKUP-PRO (https://33hops.com/xsibackup-pro-vmware … ackup.html) includes XSITools, which will allow you to deduplicate+compress your backups. For the price of a new HD you can multiply by 7-10 times your current storage capacity.

XSIBACKUP-FREE removes old backups by identifying folders that use the mask YYYMMDDhhmmss, compressed tar.gz packages are files, not folders, thus XSIBACKUP-FREE will ignore them.

Thanks for your reply. I just bought a brand-new poweredge & synology for backups so once that hits 100% full I'm getting the pro version wink
