Is there anywhere in the SQL Backup console that shows what % status completed of the backup?

    No. This information isn't readily available from SQL Server. E.g.

    For a full backup, a database that's 100 MB in size may only create a 90 MB backup, if the trx log size is 10 MB in size, all data is committed and the simple recovery model is used.

    For differential and transaction log backups, there isn't an accurate way to tell how much data needs to be backed up.
