Hi there,

Is there any ways to compress the dump file into smaller size? i have set setting in amanda.conf for compression setting.

define dumptype gnutar {
program "GNUTAR"
comment "dumped with tar"
compress server best
index
priority medium
}

i have set dumcycle as 0 since i want to have full backup on every night. Can anyone help me on this problem?
