Hello all,

  We have a situation where we are migrating some NTFS filesystems, and they
are using NetBackup to accomplish the migration (I have suggested other
ways!) The problem is that some of the directories that we backup are
compressed using NTFS compression. When NetBackup restores the files, are
the files restored compressed or uncompressed. (We're moving a 45GB
partition with some directories compressed to a 48GB partition. You see the
likely problem.)

  We, or I, don't really understand the interplay between NTFS and it's
compression architecture, and how NetBackup plays with NTFS.

  We are using NetBackup 3.2 (patch J0820326) on an HP LH3r server (NT 4.0
SP5) and all clients are running 3.2 on NT 4.0 SP4 or SP5.
