Actual Storage - Cloud vs. Local

Actual Storage Cloud Storage Local Storage Efficiency STATUS Graph

We store data compressed in the cloud, so you should always see some amount of reduction in cloud storage.

Hello Everyone!

 

I have what may be a silly question:

On our Backup device under the STATUS page in the EFFICIENCY table under the row heading ACTUAL STORAGE, Why does the local storage amount differ from the cloud storage amount?

 

We only employ one Barracuda Backup device backing up the System State and File Systems of our server; I would imagine this should mean that the storage amounts would be the same between the 2 locations but I am obviously wrong. Even the image from the STATUS page's techlib article (https://techlib.barr....com/bbs/status) shows a discrepancy between the storage amounts in the 2 locations. Can anyone explain the discrepancy?

 

I've linked a screenshot of the actual STATUS page below for reference.

That certainly would explain the situation.

 

Thanks Denton!
