Veritas 9.1 Back Exec showing different byte counts

I am running Veritas Backup Exec on a Windows Server 2003.  I have two seperate jobs that back to a hard drive ((BackUp-To-Disk Folder) instead of tape.  Job A and Job B shows to be 27 Gb and 72 Gb.  But when I look at the file on the hard drive I see the same two files (I verified the names of the file) are 5 Gb and 55 Gb.  Late last week I did turn on software compression.  I just wanted to find peace of mind that "Software compression" was the reasoning behind this.  I cannot find anything on veritas to help me support this, or I am not just using the correct key words to search by.  Just a FYI,
Job A backups up a SQL server and Job B backs up an Exchange 2003 server.  Once again thanks for all the help.

It sure looks like compression.  You can try cataloging the backups to see how many uncompressed bytes are contained.
