In Depth Information
is the list of the backups at the location (based on the backup history file located there). If you
select a backup from the list (in my case I have only one) and click the plus sign next to the
heading, it will show you details for the selected item, such as when it was done, how long it took,
the warning and error count, the directory where the files are actually located, the method used
for the backup, and a list of error messages (if there were any). There is even a convenient Begin
Restore Process link so you can start a restore right from the page.

This settings link takes you to the page that is used by both the Backup And Restore processes
to report the status of jobs (Figure 11.57). If you were to leave or close the Job Status page
during a backup or restore, you could get back to that page by going to this link to see what has
happened with the most recent backup or restore task. If you are not backing up or restoring a
SharePoint component, this link will still take you to a page populated by the most recent status
information of the last backup or restore job.
Granular Backup
New with this version of SharePoint, granular backup is a catchall subcategory for less
comprehensive backups than the entire farm or its component web applications and services. In
previous versions, site collection backups and exports were done at the command line. Keep in mind,
however, that there is no restore option in this interface—only backup for some reason. You
have to do your site collection restoration via the command line. In addition, there is a new and
convenient means to access a content database that otherwise isn’t used by SharePoint to recover
individual objects.
