Attachment Compression in Jira

We currently have Jira 5.1.3 installed and are upgrading to 6.1.2 for Jira, we have noticed that attachments are automatically compressed in 5.1.3, but cannot find the setting in 6.1.2 that will allow for that same compression.

This presents the issue that when we bring over all our attachments and restore them from the 5.1.3 instance to the 6.1.2 instance, the attachments are compressed and the new instance is not working to uncompress them (or compress new attachments).

I am sure it is a simple setting we are missing in regards to compressing attachments, but we have been unsuccessful in finding documentation online or the setting in the Administration tabs. Could someone point me at the documentation regarding this or list out possible Add-Ons that might peform this task?

Has noone else run across this problem? I would expect that there is a thrid party tool in place here, and surprised its not a default option within Jira to help conserve space.
