Normal size of a full backup

I have a small 250 mb Azure Sql database that I used the SqlBackupAndFtp app to download a backup to local folder. The dacpac file totals 28 mb, which seems way too small. Does this sound right or am I doing something wrong with creating a job?

Hello Thomas_Gueth,

Yes, that’s normal; the export to bacpac is compressed by default right away. You can verify your backup by restoring it under a different name to ensure that all data is in order.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

Thank you for using SQLBackupAndFTP.
