If I have 10 1MB files, on my tape and I want to restore the last one - it will read through all 10 files and then only write the last one back to restore it ...

So it will show 10 MB read , but the restore will only be 1 MB in size ...

Yep, seems to be the cause ...

I just backed up about 101 files that were 723 bytes each, a total of about 160k

I restored one of them  ...
 
From trylogs ...
 
Kilobytes 160  (same as current kb read in gui)
Files 1              (same as files read in gui)
