Chapter 16. Backing Up Your Computer > Viewing and Printing a Report

Viewing and Printing a Report

After performing a backup, Backup creates a report with status information about the backup. The backup report is created in Notepad (a text-editing program that comes with Windows XP) and saved in the Backup program folder on your hard drive. Each time you perform a backup, the report information is added to the beginning of the backup report file in order to create a backup history. To make it easier to manage your backup jobs, it is important to view and print a backup report after each backup so you can have a hard copy reference of the backed up files and make sure no errors occurred.
