Thank you for this information! It would be the perfect thing to show
to the user.
This piece of information can give the user a little certainty, that
the backup will succeed.
In my case, I wanted to test, if my (somewhat huge backup) would work.
But I could not see information how much space the backup will take
(compressed, not compressed does not matter). That's why I cancelled
the initial backup process.
So if I had seen the uncompressed size, I would have been more
confident about the process and continued.
Thank you again for this information. Who do I have to bribe to get
this feature? ;-)
