    Hi

    I just realized that all my backupfiles which where created by cpbackup where not compressed at tall. They have exactly the same size like the account.

    Where can I change the compression level for this backupfiles? Because my backup partition is quite full already.

    Thanks
    Michael

    Sorry, but under "Configure Backup" in WHM I can not see any compression level. I only saw that Incremental backup is not compressing the backup, but I'm not using incremental backups...

    WHM > Backup > configure backup

    disable incremental backup.

    If incremental is disabled but the files are not being compressed, my guess is you don't have enough space for your system to work.
    You might want to clear out old backups and se if that solves it for you.

    That's also not the case. On some servers there is more then enough space, but the backup files are still not compressed.
