Alex - Convert directory to dataset

New About Yours API Help
600 bytes, Plain text
I have a folder full of videos in /home/xxxx/videos on the dataset
To make backups and management easier I would like to give it its own
dataset. What is the simplest way to do this? The idea is that I can
move this to its own dataset, do a zfs send /receive to my other
freebsd server, replace the disk in that machine with a bigger one( it
is a laptop), then zfs send/ receive the data back.

Also when I reinstall on this system, what is the best way to enable
zfs compression during install? I don't remember seeing an option when
I installed it.

Thank you,
