Reduce profile's "Compressing" time

Post by JPN »


I'm struggling to understand the time it takes to compress a folder (all files into one zip). I've tried multiple folders with different contents, but the compression time does not make sense.

For example, I have a folder with 2599 files, 42 folders andat a size of 1.73GB. It's been compressing for the last 3 hours 38min and it states that it has processed just under a gig.

Is there anything I can check/uncheck to make this faster?

At this point I'm thinking to rather compress the files externally and just try to upload the zip using SyncBackPro instead of using the compression feature.
