I’m using Western Digital’s SmartWare to run my backups but other than “spot-checking” to see if selected files have been backed-up I can’t find anywhere in the SmartWare software that tells me if back-ups are running as they should and if any files were skipped for some reason. Am I overlooking something or is there really not a way to see this?
Every other back-up software I’ve used has some sort of log that tells me whether the back-up ran, how many files were backed up, whether files were skipped, and so on. Is there really no way to see the backup status? If so I’m going to have to get rid of this software and use some other backup software because I can’t imagine trusting a backup system where I can’t easily check and make sure it’s working.
