I have just recently backed up a client that reported as 550gb to backup. When finished I checked the statistics page and the backup of that PC was only 290GB.
I am using a filestore on an unraid NAS that uses the XFS filesystem. I was under the impression that XFS does not provide compression. I am connected to this share from a Ubuntu VM using NFS share.
So I then enabled the end-to-end backup verification on that client and it calculated the hashes and said all was fine. Does the end-to-end verification verify EVERY file in the back or only the files that have changed?
I am unsure whether I should trust the backup? Is there anything else I can do to verify the backup? I suppose I could restore the backup to another PC and see if the sizes match up. Unsure of how to download all the files without using the GUI though.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
