    Hi there,

     

    wouldn't it be nice if the zip file sent by FMS upon "donwnload database" were really a compressed zip file ?

    (as opposed to a file of identical size, with a mere change in extension...)

     

    We all know fmp12 files can be compressed quite efficiently.

     

    And the upload counterpart : since we now need a client to put files on a server, what about compressing the uploaded file as well ?

     

    This might already be an improvement over LAN, but imagine over WAN...

     

    Could someone think about a complete SQL dump download/upload if it wasn't zipped ?
