Hardware compression, what backup quantities are reported?

Hello,

Have this issue, and cant find any answer. 

 

Have a 45 slot library with two drives, and few months back turned on hardware compression (otherwise none), in Backup exec 2014.

It does great, like 4:1 and even higher.

However my issue is that we have a script reports the backup quantities each day and did notice a drop in backup quantities reported previous to turning on compression.

Does backup exec report data backed up as compressed or uncompressed?

 

Thank you.

...there was an issue with a cutover to the new platform, VOX, which is why you got no responses.

Backup Exec reports on the amount of data backed up, not compressed.

Thanks!
