T-SQL Script to Check the Native Compressed backup file size and Backup Compression Ratio

First of all make sure backup compression is enabled on the SQL Server. You can execute below query to check the backup compression.

select name,[description],value_in_use from sys.configurations where name like '%backup%'

Execute below script to check the compressed backup file size and backup compression ratio.

Declare @FromDate as datetime
-- Specify the from date value
set @FromDate = GETDATE() -1

SELECT  
   CONVERT(CHAR(100), SERVERPROPERTY('Servername')) AS SQLServerName, 
   msdb.dbo.backupset.database_name,  
   CASE msdb..backupset.type  
       WHEN 'D' THEN 'Database'  
       WHEN 'L' THEN 'Log'  
       WHEN 'I' THEN 'Differential'  
   END AS backup_type,  
   msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_start_date,  
   msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_finish_date, 
   msdb.dbo.backupset.expiration_date, 
   DATEDIFF (SECOND, msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_start_date, msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_finish_date) 'Backup Elapsed Time (sec)',
   msdb.dbo.backupset.compressed_backup_size AS 'Compressed Backup Size in KB',
  (msdb.dbo.backupset.compressed_backup_size/1024/1024) AS 'Compress Backup Size in MB',
   CONVERT (NUMERIC (20,3), (CONVERT (FLOAT, msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_size) /CONVERT (FLOAT, msdb.dbo.backupset.compressed_backup_size))) 'Compression Ratio',
   CASE msdb..backupset.type  
       WHEN 'D' THEN 'Database'  
       WHEN 'L' THEN 'Log'  
   END AS backup_type,  
   msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_size,  
   msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.logical_device_name,  
   msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.physical_device_name,   
   msdb.dbo.backupset.name AS backupset_name, 
   msdb.dbo.backupset.description 
FROM   msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily  
   INNER JOIN msdb.dbo.backupset ON msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.media_set_id = msdb.dbo.backupset.media_set_id 
WHERE 
CONVERT(datetime, msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_start_date, 102) >= @FromDate
AND msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_size > 0 
ORDER BY  
   msdb.dbo.backupset.database_name, 
   msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_finish_date
