    Hi all,
    I was wondering which algorithm has the best performance+size from the new backup system.
    There are available for databases:

    zip (deflate)
    zip (bzip2)
    7z (LZMA)
    7z (LZMA2)
    7z (PPMd)
    7z (BZip2)

    and for web files:

    zip (deflate)
    tar (gzip)
    tar (bzip2)
    tar (xz)
    RAR (fastest compression)
    RAR (fast compression)
    RAR (normal compression)
    RAR (good compression)
    RAR (best compression)
    tar + 7z (LZMA)
    tar + 7z (LZMA2)
    tar + 7z (PPMd)
    tar + 7z (BZip2)

    Is it bzip2?

    Also further to my question above is there a way to change for all users/sites/dbs the current backup to a new one let's say bzip2 without editing each site?

    Probably by a database update. Set one to the format you want, then update the other dB table rows to the same value.

    Run tests on your system to see the performance and size.
