I have windows backup running our backup every night. How do I create a log file to tell me if it ran and completed properly and have it on my desktop for easy access for the office manager to check?

Thank you.

which operating system you are using ?

Windows Backup keeps log files in "C:\Windows\Logs\WindowsBackups" by default. You may not be able to see this folder or its contents if you aren't an administrator on your computer.
