Good morning. I'm currently evaluating the SQL Hyperbac 5 application against a database that utilizes FILESTREAM storage for storing documents. Most of the database backup (approximately 99%) is comprised of the documents stored in the FILESTREAM data store. I was hoping for a good backup compression ratio, but only noticed about an 8% compression ratio.
My understanding is that the compression ratio is based upon the ability of the data to be compressed, but using this product in the past, saw a much better compression ratio (50% to 75%) then.
Is there anything that I might be missing?
Thank you for your assistance.
