Just checked the settings, and I discovered that the "|" character had been replaced with a ",".
I changed it back, and the compression worked perfectly as it was supposed to.
I will now try and see if I can utilise the software in my backup routine. Thanks for the help. I will also keep an eye on the settings, as they were not changed (knowingly) by me.
Once again thanks for the help.
