2008 compressed backup - does it need to decompressed before restoring

the compressed backup that 2008 offers- does it have to be decompressed before restoring?

the backup is called tracker.bak if it has to be decompressed, does sql gui offer that?

thanks

No, it is native to SQL Server, it will decompress upon using the restore commands.
