Veritas 9.1, the bytes shown under "Byte Count" under "Job Monitor", actual size or compressed?

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. :)
