No matter it is for disaster recovery or refresh QA DEV, you need to know where your backup files are and the timing. Assuming your msdb is still on-line, this script allows you to see all your backup information. If you use SQLAgent to record this on a file, you will have this info even if you lost msdb. It is specially useful when someone add a manual backup that changed your backup-chain and recovery path.
I post a number of different flavors because some people use differential backup, some don't; some do transaction log backup, some don't. Choose the code and modify to suit your purpose.
