Consecutive Job Failure Recovery Report

The Consecutive Job Failure Recovery Report lists the first successful backup job since the last failed backup for each Subclient/Backup Type combination and the last successful backup job after the last failed backup during the specified number of days. The number of days that the backup failed, the job ID from the last failed job, the recovered backup job id and its start and end times are included in this report.

Running the Report
