Summary0000346: CE 6.4 Pointer scan does not compress pointer file when first scan was uncompressed
DescriptionFirst, do a pointer scan with the compression off. Make sure the level is deep enough so you can see the writing % go up.
Eventually, abort.
Next, delete all the scan files from the disk manually, and repeat the same scan but this time, turn compression on.
You should see that CE does not compress the pointer data.
TagsNo tags attached.

can you actually confirm the results are not compressed ? Due to caching it's possible that it finds results a lot faster now (also, the default behavior is to reuse the previous pointermap so the progressbar part gets skipped)

(and ssd's have this annoying 'issue' where initial write bursts get handled fast, but subsequent write bursts within a specific time are slower. Probably due to cleanup/maintenace)

Could you upload the .ptr and .ptr.* files where you did enable compression but it failed ?

Meh, I was look it at the wrong pointer file all the time.
False report, sorry!!!
