  • The result shows the total number of backed up objects and the type of object changes that have been backed up.
  • Information such as who triggered the backup process, date when the backup was taken, time taken to complete the backup, and the status of the backup are shown on the right-hand side.
  • Clicking on the Explore Backup link will open the Restore page.
