Daily backup sizes?

How can I find out daily backup sizes as stored onto my StoreOnce?  StoreOnce GUI doesn't help - just daily change in total size on disk or total user data stored (i.e. data added minus data expired).  The dedupe reduces the total size reported in IDB sessions, but I can't easily find the end result.

In DP Admin Console (IDB page) I can see Session > Properties > Messages, then I have to page down to the bottom to see Megabytes Total, and then divide that by Deduplication Ratio.  I can't do that for 100 jobs/day!  Is there an easier way to list the "bottom line" for each job? 

Where are the Session Messages file stored?  Perhaps I can use good old findstr utility to extract the data.

Hello @ianbutton1

A report could help you. Maybe one of the Media reports. 

There are some like "Extended List of Media" or "List of Media". You can filter by device, dates and medium format. And have the used mediums and the size used during that range
