Running 3.2 build 428 on Windows 7 32-bit.
Doing a disk-to-disk copy, and I notice the log file says
many files such as .jpg, .dsd and others are "compressing"
For example:

....
Compressing F:\...\somefile.jpg
Copied F:\...\somefile.jpg
....

Is it really compressing and uncompressing these files as it copies them?
Or is the message incorrect?


Also, I would prefer if the main window would not disappear when I click "Pause". Sometimes the _reason_ I am pausing is to look at something in the log.


Thanks and Best Regards,
--

The files are compressed because the source file has the compressed NTFS attribute set, simply copying the file to a location that is not compressed will decompress the file that is why the file is compressed by AISBackup after copy.

It would not be possible to use any other function of AISBackup during a pause as it is paused by showing a modal form (that is a form requiring a user action - namely a click of a button).
