    Question Migration tool export size relative to mail box stores

    Hi

    When comparing a finished export from an old server, the export uses 635G of space but the mail stores on the server use ~800G. Is this just some compression in the backed up objects or does the backup process tidy stuff up in some other way?

    Hi putt1ck and welcome to our forums.

    It's just compression and deduplication featured by zextras Backup (and Powerstore). When you plan your import you can also set your current zimbra volume for compression and after the migration you can run a deduplication in that volume to get the same space usage.

    Have a nice weekend.
