    Size of store directory after migration

    Good day!

    I try to migrate my old zimbra 7 to zimbra 8 OSE but faced with the following problem.
    The size of zimbra store directory on my old server - 764GB
    Backup size - 538GB
    But zimbra/store directory on the new server has 929GB already and it's still increasing.
    RealTime scanner was enabled but, as I understand, backup operation wasn't perfromed cause /zimbra/backup/zextras has only 35MB.
    Is it usual situation?

    Hello nektod,
    welcome to the forums!

    A difference in size between the source and destination store directories is quite common, as data in the source might have been compressed and deduplicated: I suggest to run a full volume deduplication as soon as the restore is over, and maybe consider using ZeXtras Powerstore's HSM capabilities to move older data into a compressed volume to further save more disk space...

    Have a nice day,
    the ZeXtras Team
