    Smaller than expected backup sizes

      Hi Guys,

       

      Just wondering if this is expected behaviour or not. We've recently backed up three of our scanning appliances (11.2 CentOS 6) via SSH to a backup server, the estimated backup size for each of them was roughly 150gb but the actual size of each backup file ended up being somewhere around 30/40gb of disk space. We had Verify backup, Include sensitive data, Encrypt Backup set to on. And Reduce backup size set to off.

       

      I understand there could be some compression when it comes to the encryption / backup process, but I wouldn't have expected such a decrease, especially with the Reduce backup size option set to off.

       

      Thanks,

      Joe
