Use this window to view history information pertaining to operations associated with the selected client computer group, client, agent, instance/partition, backup set, or subclient. Right-click any of the rows to view more items. Note that some of the columns in this window may not be applicable to some of the agents. For example, some agents do not support backup sets and hence may appear blank.
