    How come backups wont compress?

    I have same size of hard drives and the hda have used 26% and the only for backups drive have used 29%.

    How can this be, I thought that backups would be compressed.
    Backups are set to remount/unmount and incremental is disabled.

    Do you have backups set to daily, weekly, and monthly? That would give 3 copies of everything. Are there sites with images or videos? They don't compress much and take up most of the space.
