Reporting SQl Backup Performance

I have been through all the documentation, the help files, and these forums, and nowhere do I see that there are any reporting tools built into SQl Backup, not even something as simple as an output of database, backup type, ran duration , completed, etc.

Am I just completely missing the ball on this, or is this true? And if it is, how do I produce reports on the performance of your product outside of taking screen shots and pasting them into a document (tacky)?

    If you are using SQL Backup 5, the GUI allows you to generate some reports on the backups that have been performed. The function is located on the Tools\Reporting menu.

  • There is a page in the help file under the 'Creating Backups' section called 'Reporting'.

    If you click F1 when you have the Reporting dialog open (Select Tools -> Reporting) it should open the help file at the correct page.
