just a sanity check please? The documentation site states
Compress all packets, including file data. This is recommended if the folders contents are mainly compressible data such as documents or text files.
I have a usage case where 7zip manages to compress files from 3400MiB down to 306MiB. This is using command line args :
7z.exe a -bt -mx=5 -mmt -mx5 means compression lvl 5 for 7z archive type (LZMA:24)
Given the above, would it be a good idea to set syncthing to compress always ? What kind of compression ratio would be the result? How could I test this to see some numbers with & without compression ?
