I've managed to get myself confused good.  The bytes shown under "Byte Count" under "Job Monitor", actual size or compressed?  I'm currently showing over 50g on a HP DAT40 drive, 20/40 that is.

1024 bytes per kilobyte, 1024 kilobytes per megabyte.
You're thinking kilobytes instead of bytes for the numbers, that's all ;-)

I just figured it out, the byte count is the data that is processed.  I can look at the acutal tape to see how much data was written, it also tells me the ratio.  

I understand the difference in bytes, kb, mb, etc.  I was confsued why I had 50,292,527,722 bytes on a 40gb tape. :)
