I have some SQL 2005 jobs which run nightly backups of the database to a local drive.
The jobs are running OK (Well, I can see that they are doing something) because I can see a new backup file being written each evening.
When I right click on the the Job and view history there is nothing.
Other jobs do display history, and generally speaking there is history older than the job I'm interested in (i.e. the log is not getting cleared down).
Unless the backup is being run by another process (which therefore WOULD have some history) - which I do not believe it is - where is my history?
I think I'm missing something really simple here (it is a Friday afternoon).
