    hi all, i have a simple question about backup set, why database backups are smaller in size than the actual size of database backup.

    "why database backups are smaller in size than the actual size of database backup".
    I don't understand the question.
    If you are asking: why database backup are smaller in size than actual database, then the reason is: backup don't store the database reserved size to grow.
