First, I want thank you for your great backup tool making my day a lot more relaxed.

At a test restore of my backup i noticed that blocked files will get a size of 0 byte after restoration. I use a custom compress tool named "qpress" which makes compressed files a little bigger than bzip2 but it is much faster.

All compress relevant options of my configuration file:
compressLogInBackupDir = yes
compress = qpress -c dummyFileName
uncompress = qpress -dc
postfix = .qp03
checkBlocksRule0 = '$size > &::SIZE("1M")' and '$file =~ m#vmail/#'
checkBlocksBS0 = 256k
checkBlocksCompr0 = yes

The problem is that the splitted part files, which i want to backup my mails stored in mbox format looks like this:

But they are compresses with bzip2, not with qpress, so the restoration will not work.
The configuration above works fine with non-blocked files.

Have i made a mistake in my configuration?
Would be very nice if you could help me.
best regards, Bernhard
