Let me just say you have done a great job with the compression feature!
I had a ~200GB repo and it is now 104GB! Amazing! I have some other smaller repos that were reduced to 1/3 the original size! All in all I gained about 200GB by using compression.
Thank you so much for a job well done! You certainly have come up with the best backup application that I know.
Let me also say that I had several physical storage failures, and some kernel upgrade failures and restic saved my bacon each time! What could have been days of work turned out to be half an hour. Just restore from backup. Thank you so much!
