To better answer your question, the byte count is the data that is processed.  You can look at the actual tape to see how much data was written.

Compression ratio is how much that data was compressed by the tape device.  ie you are at 1.6:1

A 2:1 would half the amount fo space you need
A 4:1 would quarter it.

You can also use the byte count to work out the Server Throughput Speed in Backup Exec:

Convert the byte count to megabytes
Convert the elapsed time to seconds
Perform the following calculation to determine Server Throughput speed:

Media Throughput Speed = size/elasped time
