If I run SELECT * FROM msdb.dbo.BACKUPSET  it includes the name of the backup set.  That name is the name assigned with the parameter of 'name' in the t-sql backup command.

Is there another  SQL table that contains the name of the backup file that shows up in Windows explorer?
 
Example:
BACKUP LOG BACKUPSAMPLE TO DISK = 'F:\BACKUPSAMPLE_LOG4.BAK' with name = 'backupsample log backup 128'

I am interested in 'BACKUPSAMPLE_LOG4.BAK'  and if possible, the location of the backup?
