I'm currently backing up data using rsync over ssh to remote hard 
drives.  Those drives have filled up quite quickly.  Has anyone worked 
with transparent compression on file systems?  Does it work well?  Are 
there any risks?  I'm not (at the moment) worried about speed, just 
space.  Is there a better way to do this?
