A Script A Day - Day 27 - Missing Database Backups

2012/02/29

Today‚Äôs script is one I have used many times in the past to check for missing backups.  The script will return the database name and the last full backup date of all databases that are in the FULL recovery model and have not had a FULL database backup in the last 24 Hours.

Enjoy!
