The best "overall" compression I've ever seen has been about 1.5:1. That is,Yes, this is about what I get with Dantz's compression with a Macintosh File
a file that was 3 MB in size now is only 2 MB. Sure, I've seen better (and
worse), but on average, for the contents of a typical hard disk, compression
probably will be somewhere around 1.5:1. At least that's been my experience.
Please don't ask me to actually define "typical"...
Back-up set. It has worked just about flawlessly for us. 70% compressed or
a 30% compression rate is pretty close to what I get. (exact average amount has not
been figured out) We are a graphics/print business and deal with a lot of tiffs, eps,
fh docs, etc...
