This BRRESTORE command option sets compression mode.

Input syntax: -k|-compress no|yes|hardware

Default value: no (no compression)

If the value for decompression does not agree with the compression type from the backup being used when you start BRRESTORE, an appropriate warning is issued. However, BRRESTORE always decompresses the files that were saved with software compression.

·        yes: If you performed the backup with software compression and compress = yes is not set in the initialization profile, you should use this option.

·        hardware: BRRESTORE does not distinguish internally between no and hardware.

Parameters in init<DBSID>.sap compress.
