Get-WBBackupSet [[-BackupTarget] <WBBackupTarget>] [[-MachineName] <string>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The WBBackupSet object contains information about backup time and date, computer that was backed up, what type of backup was created, and what items were backed up.

Parameters

Notes

When the Get-WBBackupSet cmdlet is used with the BackupTarget parameter, it shows all backups at the specified location. And when it is used with the parameters BackupTarget and MachineName, it returns all backups for the specified server stored at the specified location.

  • To use Windows Server Backup cmdlets, you must be a member of the Administrators group or Backup Operators group.
