If I purchase, will I be able to open an .sqb file in the Microsoft restore gui and see the size of the LIVE .MDB file WITHOUT RESTORING like I can directly with a .bak file ?

You can use the SQL Backup GUI to see the database size e.g.



You can also check the database size using Windows Explorer, as SQL Backup comes with an Explorer add-on e.g.




Lastly, you can run the RESTORE SQBHEADERONLY command to check the database size e.g.
