Hi Everybody,

    I am working on a backup script for Postgres 8.0 online backups and 
since i have to copy the whole pgdata directory , i am wondering after i 
copy the pgdata directory can I run gzip or tar on the data directory ? 
is it safe to do gzip or tar and I can safely restore the backups later ?

Thanks in advance,
