How do I use the history

This article shows you how to use the backups history. The History window can be open from View->History.

  • 46 history

In History window you can see all logs for the backup, restore, test and clean actions.
The logs can be filtered by job/group name, action type, status (success, warning or error) and date.
Double click or right-click on a log to open it.
You can also open the History window if you right-click the job/group in the backup list and choose the Job History/Group History option.
In this case, the History window will be automatically filtered for that backup job/group.
You can customize the History window if you right-click on the header and check another columns.

The available columns are:
