can I ask how accurate the following shell command...

$dbs | ft name,last*


...is for giving an accurate picture of when a mailbox DB was last fully backed up/incrementally backed up?

What generates this date/time, and is it only accurate if say you were using windows backup, or if you used a 3rd party tool such as backup exec, would the output of this command be potentially misleading?

Also is there an equivalent to get the same kind of report for public folder databases..

Out of interest how often do you do full mailbox DB backups, and  how often do you do incremental backups?

Try this:

Get-MailboxDatabase -Status | fl Name,Server,*backup*

For public folder report/statistic, you might find something from: http://blog.mikewalker.me/2013/05/exchange-2010-public-folder-replication.html

I use DPM to back up our exchange and it seems the output is accurate. I do full backup every night.
