Compression is a very tricky thing. The amount of compression you would get depends entirely on the data type you backup. For instance if you are backing up .txt, .doc files you would get a good compression. However, if you are backing up archived files you will not get a good compression.

When you select compression in DLO each time a file is backed up it would be compressed for data transfer over the network and would be saved as compressed on the Storage location.

If the compression was enabled after the first backup was done only the files after the compression was enabled would be compressed the files from previous backup would be saved as is.

Even for Delta File Transfer you can use compression.

Hope this helps
