    Hello,
    I moved a backup file to a new VPS and it has been decompressing for 4 hours now
    so I was wondering how much should I keep waiting for this to finish.

    Make sure you have ample amout of space with your VPS. Regarding dcompression of the file , it can not be predicted how much more time it will take.

    Exact time depends on how much files it actually has. More the files in it more it will take time.. Check at what phase the extraction is. There are cases where mails are in billions and the extraction takes time..

    Hello,

    The time can vary, as mentioned in the previous post. It depends on the contents of the file, and your server's available resources.

    Thank you.
