Click on Job Monitor > then under Job history section click on the JOB you want the details for ; it will show you a new window which will have two tabs : Job Log and Job history ;
The information displayed here depends on what you have selected under Tools > Options > Job Logs
You can then select whether you want information on directories and files processed or not.
One thing to note here is that if your backup job is a big on (around a terabyte (TB) then sometimes it won't display it in html/xml rather txt.
So first check : Tools > Options > Job Logs > and see what option is there
If you already have "summary information, directories and files processed" then you would be able to see that when you would double click the job name under job monitor > job history section.
Or
You can right click on the media you are backing up (even if it is not inserted) and the select restore and it will show you what has been backed up.
Hope this helps
