SQL Backup File Name

As I’ve mentioned, I’m doing a ton of SQL work lately (more on that later!) and I just had a co-worker ask for something so I threw together this quick query.  One of our backups had failed and he just wanted to know where the backup file was being placed (in most cases we backup locally but we do have some exceptions).  I threw together this query to locate the file name:

I also have a new PowerShell script that reports on SQL backups that I want to get published, as well as a more intelligent index rebuilder that is Availability Group and log shipping aware.

Stay tuned!
