(Snapshot Full) backup job description no longer visible in BE 2012

I am testing BE 2012, and noticed that during a file restore I can no longer see whether backup jobs are differential or full. In 2010 each backup job available from the restore window was appended with either (Snapshot Full) or (Snapshot Differential). This little detail speeds up restores.

How can I enable this to show in BE 2012 restore window?

Thank you,

There is no way to enable the description that you want in BE 2012.  The important thiing is for you to select the point-in-time that you want to restore to.  You don't have to worry about whether you are selecting an incremental or a full backup, BE 2012 will restore the necessary backup sets to get you to that point-in-time.

However, if you still feel that these descriptions are helpful to you, then put this up as a suggestion in the Ideas section.  If enough people agree with you, it might be implemented in some future release of BE.
