Change compression algorithm on half-full repository

I have a question about compression.

I have a repository compressed with S2, fast and performant.

But I need to make more space and I would like to set up pgzip compression.

What happens if I do it? I don’t want to cause problems.

Are the previous files converted to pgzip or only the new files that will be backed up?

Will I end up with a half S2 and half PGZIP repository or will everything be standardized with the new compression algorithm?

Thank you

Old blobs are not automatically converted to the new compression algorithm. Only new blobs will be using the new algorithm. kopia content stats shows how much data is saved uncompressed or compressed with a certain algorithm.

This post explains how to recompress your data (with a new repository):
