The Backups area of the SQL Backup Master main window lists existing database backup jobs.


Each entry in the backup job listing exposes several fields:


Status - Shows the status of the backup job, based upon the last time (if ever) it was executed.

Summary - A brief summary of the data being backed up by this job.

Last Run - The date and time the job was last executed (if ever).

Next Run - Indicates when the next backup will occur, if one is scheduled.

Schedule - A brief summary of the job's execution schedule.

Description - The description specified by the user in the backup job editor window.


To edit an existing backup job, double-click it within the list or right-click it and choose Edit settings.


Several buttons are also available for each backup job:


To trigger an immediate full backup of an existing job, click the Run now button associated with the list entry.

Click the Recover button to initiate an assisted database recovery.

Use the Actions button associated with a backup job list entry to view the associated backup log, edit the backup job settings, duplicate the backup job, delete the backup job, or run a differential backup.
