Can backup files from v7 be imported to v6.5?

Post by davidb1234 » Aug 20, 2013 5:19 pm

We are trying to plan our migration and this question came up. If we migrate to v7 and take a few days worth of backups and then something goes terribly wrong and we want to go back to 6.5 can we import the v7 backups? Will the v7 backups be usable by 6.5? Could they be relocated and imported to a 6.5 system?

What if the v7 backup files are using the new optimal compression that is not available in v6.5?

I believe the answer is no. v6.5 is most likely unaware of v7 backup files format. However, it works in the opposite way, as we always provide backward compatibility with previous versions.
