Configure Backup Compression (SQL Server)

 

Applies To: SQL Server 2016

At installation, backup compression is off by default. The default behavior for backup compression is defined by the backup compression default Option server-level configuration option. However, you can override the server-level default when creating a single backup or scheduling a series of routine backups. To change the server-level default, see View or Configure the backup compression default Server Configuration Option.

You can change the backup compression behavior for an individual backup, backup job, or log shipping configuration.
