No, not in a running job. You could use the reports to generate and quick overview how much data has been backed up in which time frame per session.

If the only reason you ask about that is to better see at a glance the amount of data read/written so far in a job, simply because the numbers are getting so large they become hard to grasp for a human, there is a (partial) solution from another direction: Go to File/Preferences..., choose the Advanced tab and change to Use system settngs for number format there. This turns the display of 123456789 KB into 123.456.789,00 KB (in my locale, in an english one it would use commas for digit grouping). That helps a lot to instantly grasp the order of magnitude of the number, even though it's not the solution you wanted. The advantage is, you still see progress even when it's trickling: Imagine a backup that had switched to displaying GBs - it would only show progress every written GB. Unless, of course, that display would start presenting a comma/decimal point and more decimal positions, which makes it about as hard to grasp as the number we have after adjusting the setting above. Then again, if the GUI would grow some means of displaying instantaneous and average throughput directly instead of letting us guess, that would be even better...

 

HTH anyway,
