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 ?
