    G’day Inpsyde,

    The option to use bzip2 for archive compression has disappeared. Looking at the code, it appears to have been removed entirely, even though the readme still proclaims support for it.

    Is it gone from the free version, as well as the pro version? Was it removed because of a problem?

    cheers,
    Ross

    Hi @webaware
    Yes, we decided to remove bzip2 completely because it’s an old not well-supported algorithm in PHP 🙂
    Hope my answer helps you!
    Btw, If you find BackWPUp is useful for you, we would really appreciate if you leave a positive review and rating.
    This would encourage us to develop new free features and provide free support 😀

    G’day @duongcuong96,

    Thanks for the quick response, and my apologies for getting back to you so late.

    It’s a pity that bzip2 has gone; I particularly like it for db backups where it can squeeze another 25% off the archive size.

    But I still love the plugin, and have finally added a review — thanks for the prompt, have been meaning to!

    cheers,
    Ross
