The Backup Report page displays the following information on a per-agent basis:

  • Screenshots: Generates a report listing the date, time, outcome of each screenshot verification performed for the agent.
  • Forced Backups: Generates a report listing the date, time, and outcome of each forced (manually-started) backup performed for the agent.
  • Scheduled Backups: Generates a report listing the date, time, and outcome of each scheduled backup performed for the agent.
  • Last Screenshot: Displays the date and time of the agent's most recent screenshot verification.
  • Last Successful Backup: Displays the date and time of the agent's most recent successful backup.

For each agent, you can download a backup and screenshot report in PDF or CSV format by clicking the Export dropdown on the Backup Report page, and on each report displayed in the GUI.
