As our institution prepares for its accreditation visit, there are areas where we need to produce documentation for certain pieces of our distance learning programs; one of these areas is the length of retention for backups of data, and how long the data is maintained.
There is currently no way to run a report showing the last back-up, the amount or detail of records/data backed up, or (based upon the specificity of system settings), when the backup will expire.
This could be solved with the creation of a simple report that could be run at any time, showing when the last back-up took place, what was backed up (from a data volume and number of records perspective), and when that backup will expire (10 years? 100 years?) - so that it can be provided for accreditation, a monthly IT meeting, an audit, or for whatever purposes it might serve.
