    Question How about free volume needed for Zimbra export?

    Hello everybody!
    I plan to migrate our old Zimbra 6 x32 to Zimbra 8 x64 but I want to know how much temporary free space I'll need for export process.
    Now I have 250GB of mails.
    For me it's important to know because I dont have to much space at disposiotion for exporting process.
    I plan to make the migration in this mode:
    Zimbra OLD ---> Exporting to temporary partition ---> migration of exported files (ftp) ---> importing to Zimbra New.
    Can you help me?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello Sergiu!

    It's hard to give an exact estimate, but the worst case scenario is that the export size is the same as the Zimbra Store size while usually it's 30-40% lower (it ultimately depends on the kind of files in your volumes and on the eventual compression set on your Zimbra volumes)...

    Have a nice day,
