About the icons on the Status page

The Status page lets you monitor the status of your backups. The Status page lists each drive on your computer and includes a calendar that contains your backup histories. The calendar lets you quickly identify when a backup ran, and what type of backup it was. It identifies your upcoming, scheduled backups. It also lists the file and folder backup history if you have defined one or more file and folder backups.

Note:

You can right-click any of the calendar icons to access a context-sensitive menu. These menus offer quick access to related tasks.

Refer to the following table for the meaning of each icon that is displayed in the Backups calendar.
