Full backup is usually run asynchronously. When you begin the full backup, the label of the ongoing backup process is immediately displayed. The backup continues in the background. You can use the zmbackupquery command to check the status of the running backup at any time.
Backup files are saved as zip files without compression. To change the default zip option, see Appendix A Command Line Interface, zmbackup section.
