file compression on target side

Hello All,

I have been using rsync to backup several filesystems by using Mike
Rubel's hard link method

The problem is, I am backing up a lot of ASCII .log, csv, and .txt
files. These files are large and can range anywhere from 1GB to 30GB.
I was wondering if on the target side (the backup side), if I can use
some sort of compression. I am using ext3 filesystem.

Any ideas?
