Compression ratio

  • I am trying this software for the first time to compress a 130Gb IBM DB2 Backup of a database. I used the default compression ratio and ended up with a file that is under 600Mb.

    Is this even possible? Its gonna be hours, if not a full day b4 i can uncompressed and test it.

    Any info would be nice.

    Sorry, but currently PACL compression (any type) does not support such a large amount of data - the current limit is ~2GB 😞
    If you don’t need command line - try PowerArchiver for Windows.
