Backup Devices - Backup Device properties



The Device contents area allows you to view the contents of the backup device: Media name, Number of media families, Family sequence number, Media description.


The lower list displays the backup operation(s) as a grid with the following columns: Finished on, Backup type, DB Name, Backup Name, Size (KB), Number, Expire on, Backup description, Device Type, Created on, Created by. If more convenient, you can change the order of the columns by dragging their headers horizontally.


Click a column caption to sort items by values of this column in the ascending or the descending mode.


If necessary, you can group the data in grid by any of the columns. This operation is performed by dragging the column header to the gray "Group by" box area at the top. When grouping by a column is applied to the grid, all the rows are displayed as subnodes to the grouping row value. To reverse grouping, just drag the column header back.
