Get backup details from powershell


  • I would like to get a list of the last 20 or so backups, ideally with status, start time, end time, amount of data transferred. Basically the information in Last Backup/View Details window, but for the last 20 backups.

    I thought perhaps this information might be available using powershell. Get-WBBackupSet gives me this

    VersionId        : 05/31/2018-19:00
    BackupTime       : 2018-05-31 21:00:06
    BackupTarget     : \\?\Volume{1f595350-71c8-4029-8d46-03e18ed44607}
    RecoverableItems : Volumes, SystemState, Applications, Files, BareMetalRecovery
    Volume           : {System Reserved, Local disk (C:), Shares (E:)}
    Application      : {FRS, AD, Registry}
    VssBackupOption  : VssFullBackup
    SnapshotId       : 61fb1bfa-bdbc-4ac8-8997-6d78b9de22fc
    BackupSetId      : b36d31d3-f56b-4988-8534-4bdd3e88e839
    Is there any way to get more info?

    The server is running Windows Server 2012 R2.
