Backup file storage path

Posted by Bandi under Sql Server category on | Points: 40 | Views : 388
Sometimes, DBAs need to know where the back up files stored and what is the path of back files.... This helps them to verify whether the backup files are healthy and they can use them for restoring databases ( replicating PRODCUTION databases/data to DEV/TESTing environments)

mainly, backupmediafamily contains the details of backup file paths

SELECT  @@Servername AS ServerName ,
d.Name AS DatabaseName ,
b.Backup_finish_date ,
bmf.Physical_Device_name BackupDeviceName
FROM sys.databases d
INNER JOIN msdb..backupset b ON b.database_name =
AND b.[type] = 'D'
INNER JOIN msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily bmf ON b.media_set_id = bmf.media_set_id
b.Backup_finish_date DESC;
