No.
>From just the information above it's entirely possible that the actual
_total_ size of 20090712 could be 0.2GB; although we have more info and
know that's not the case. It could be that there is a 0.2GB file that
changes every time, hence that 0.2GB is only in 20090705, so the total
size of 20090712 is also 31.7GB.

No. Maybe, but you just can't tell from the info given.
The "log" file I referred to earlier gives all the necessary info...
