On a 400MHz system I would not even consider turning on compression, <snip>
Set compression to 1 asap, & run a full backup again, in case you need to restore again.


Thanks Janet

I will take your advice, especially after this experience.  If you drink I owe you a large one   :-)

I tell you what Terry I wouldn't recommend it, nerve wracking or what   :shock:   I doubt anyone else is daft enough to use such old hardware though   :-)

Ah but the joy of SME is that it will happily chug away on that level of hardware doing a job, basic website, email, etc...its only when the big jobs come along that the hardware starts getting in the way

At least you are now in a position to make an informed decision on upgrading etc..many make that move when it all blows up..:-)

Good Luck
