I have a customer who wants to use iFolder to make a nightly off-site backup of an application running on a Windows XP SP3 desktop. It seemed like a reasonable request until I found that each backup is 2 gigabytes.

Each backup is a single file that can be compressed to a fraction of the uncompressed size so I was wondering what issues I might face if I enabled compression on the folder where the backup is saved. That folder would also be the iFolder.

Would iFolder sync the compressed file?
