I use Peters Backup also for pictures in JPEG format and music in FLAC format. Since these are already compressed formats, compressing them again doesn't gain any space.

Could the backup of such files be made faster with an option that prohibits the compression? So that you can for example write:

d:\photos\*/S/U

where /U is for Uncompressed.

    I do not believe you will gain any speed or improve the disk space used if I made this change. You can back up those files and they will effectively be uncompressed in the backup, but other files you are backing up will be compressed.
