It would really be nice if Hyperbac supported 7zip. Here's a comparison of compression output:

Original 1,124,445 KB
Std SQL Compressed backup: 176,262
RAR through Hyperback: 185,984 KB
HBC through Hyperback: 193,978
7zip LZMA at Ultra: 59,298


  • Hello 24seven,

    Thanks for your request. I have submitted this as a feature request under HB-104. It will now be reviewed to determine if this will be included in future releases of the product.
