Check if backup is completed?

Hi all,

sometimes, especially during the full backup, customer can shutdown his PC prematurely, before the backup is finished. I saw that in this case VEW left the .vbk file in the storage.

Is there any way to verify the .vbk/.vib files in VEW? To check their consistency and to know if it's fully written?

Thanks in advance,

If backup was interrupted next job run will reuse the create files. You can start a File Level Recovery to check that backup file in the question is operational.
