Compression is good... Backup 3 does compress the archive before writing it to disk. Now, I don't know the efficiency of the compression compared to a .zip file, but compression is part of the routine that goes like this:

Scans the files on your Mac's hard disk, then checks your iDisk to make sure you have enough room, then compresses the archive, and finally uploads the archive to your iDisk.

    Ok, great-- thanks. I followed the smart folder tip, and unfortunately some files with wrong modified dates threw the whole backup off. I'll fix those and try again.
