Normal Compression on a Database with Page Compression runs forever


#1

I’m a first time user of this tool. I was wondering is this normal behavior of this tool when we use compression level Normal for a database that has partitions with page compression. Backup is complete within expected time but runs longer while"compressing…" !
Am I missing anything or that’s normal?

Hi BISWA MOHAPATRA,

Yes, everything works properly. Also, you can use 7zip compression with an additional 7zip parameters which can be specified at the “Compression Settings” window.
