I would like to know if the standard file uploading is using Efficy.smartCompressEx(stream, fileName)
if yes, we can see in edn that

If a Filename is specified, SmartCompressEx checks if it is necessary
to compress it (depending on the file extension).

I would like to know especially if pdf file are compressed or not, but it can be interesting to have the entire rules of what is compressed ? and what is not compressed.

Maybe outdated - information is from 2014 - but this is what I found:

The list of file extenstions that are not compressed is hardcoded in the efficy.dll

.zip .tar.gz .rar .jpg .jpeg .gif .png .mp3 .wma.

it is usefull for me because the question is for a 2014 right now, .. but we will migrate in 11.2.
Can you find somewhere the response for 11.2 ?

Do we know how it is compressed ?

(the question behind, is : is it possible to get the compressed stream  out of Efficy, and decompress it in an external application ?)
It's best to export the files using the Efficy API
