Question about Backup/Restore database file size

I just made a backup from our database using two methods : first creating a backup via the menu Backup/Restore → Create backup and save all tables. Second one using mysqldump with ssh.

The file created with Cs-Cart backup function is about 300mo
The one with mysqldump is about 600mo

Is it normal to have such a different size ?

A backup created by CS-Cart is being archived, so it will always be lesser than a dump created by mysqldump :slight_smile:
