Nice idea, but saving only 100GB is not much on a 1.6TB filesystem. And it is not a real solution to the diskspace-problem I was talking about. One extra concern: if you do so we will have 300GB of gzipped files on the backupserver, and 200GB of bzipped2 files. And as a result we do not have any space anymore on the backupserver. And that is exactly what I/ops is trying to solve. Pls do not do this on your own and consult ops before actually planning this! Gerard.
