  • Windows Backup Server 2008 R2

    Hi

    I am looking for a script or something that will get server 2008 R2 to send me an email when a successful windows backup has taken place!

    Does anyone have this implimented, dont want to have to pay for backup assist as i think windows backup is great on its own apart from this small issue.

    Many Thanks

    You should be able so set an alert from the event log:
    Find the "backup completed" event
    Right click and "Attach a task to this event"
    Follow the wizard
