Feature Request - Show Changed Files in incremental Backup

I would like the ability to see what files are actually backing up in in incremental files. There is no way of verifying what files are actually changing to be backed up to my knowledge. My backup jobs are higher than expected and I would like to see what files are changing on a daily basis to justify using the software. I think this would be a invaluable addition to the software.

I am doing a Entire Computer backup which should exclude Recycle Bin, Temporary & Page Files. With this feature I would be able to see what files are changing and a way to identify files that I might want to exclude in a backup job in future releases.

I don't think this feature is in v1.5, but would also enjoy this feature!!

Hi Paul,

Correct. This feature was not included in the product. Can you describe your personal use case, so we could better understand the potential use case? Thanks!

I agree, this would be a very nice feature.
