Just a quick question:
Is the Date Modified value a good indication of when a .BKF file was last updated?

I would say yes and no. I use this as an indicator of whether the backup job has run and completed. however, it does not necessarily indicate that the .bkf file has maintained its file integrity. The backup always has a chance of being corrupt. If you want to ensure that the backups are maintaing integrity you should ensuring that NTbackup is creating log files of the backup jobs it runs. I would also occasionally restore your backups to an alternate location and ensure that all of the files included in the backup job are present.

Hope this helps :)
