Hi All. When I do a manual back-up of my database via ACP, the back-up file is much larger if this operation is done via Google Chrome and the back-up is downloaded directly via browser. I do a full back-up, gzip, all tables.
For my board, the back-up file weights 2.8 MB when downloaded via Chrome, and only 0.6 MB when downloaded via Firefox. When I choose the "store locally" option, database size is 0.6 MB for most browsers. ACP tells me that unzipped database size is 4.7 MiB
When I open these back-ups using text editor, they look completely different. The larger one downloaded via Chrome has some legible parts, e.g. I can find actual text of posts, whereas the 0.6 MB database, when opened via text editor, has 8 columns with 4 random letters and digits each.
Would someone be so kind and explain me what's going on here? To be honest, I never tested restoring my board from a back-up, and now I feel I have to
