Go to your backup job, right-click on it and select "Edit Settings". On the third page you will find the level of compression used. To check if the backup is successful, go to the backup destination and find the right ".v2i" file; right-click and mount it. If it mounts, you are good to go. You can also use Recovery Point Browser. Regarding deduplication, here is a similar post

Why do you think you have an issue? As another poster mentioned, this may just be due to the compression level you are seeing with the data that was backed up.

If you can mount the recovery point, all should be fine.
