Find Database backup history in SQL Server

question-markI had one article yesterday which finds out database restore history by querying some of the system table resides in MSDB database. After reading that article, I got question in my “Quick Learn” forum as well as in Twitter too that how can we find database backup history?

In fact, we needs to find database restore history only in rare case but it is mandatory for DBA to keep a track of the backup history. I have already written article which provides TSQL script which will cater the need of finding database backup history. Click here to see the script.

BTW, recently I have started one section in “Quick Learn” forum where you can come and ask me any SQL Server related question. Click here to ask me any SQL Server or .NET related question.
