Backup statistics

To view backup statistics for a certain group or team, click More (More icon) on the right of the group or the team. This will expand and show the backup timeline and the summary tiles.

Backup statistics

The timeline shows the number of items backed up each day. To view details, hover over the respective column. The numbers include all new and changed items, so it may be greater than the total number of items included in backup (shown in the summary tiles).

By default, the timeline shows information for the last two weeks. To adjust this range, use the slider below the timeline. The maximum range is 30 days.

Backup timeline

The summary tiles below the timeline show information about the backup of items in the group or the team: number of items included in backup, date and result status of the last backup.
