Reports within Backup Exec 2012 that contain date fields, display these fields in American format of MM/DD/YYYY even if the operating system of the media server is set to a regional date format (such as DD/MM/YYYY for UK)


Note: Whilst potentially confusing, this is a cosmetic issue with no direct effect on backup and restore operations.
