I'm using:

Version 4.5

Windows 7

all is working fine, but being a bit paranoid I would like to check if the external file where I backup onto is corrupted or not.

The immediate reason for my concern is that I pulled it out without doing 'Safely remove hardware'.

I know that usually that's not a problem, but also in a general sense I'd like to have a way to know that the backup is viable.

I have been backing up for a year or so, and have never needed to use it. Hopefully will never have to.

But basically - how can I know that it is all OK without actually trying to restore from the external drive?

Thanks for any help,

The backup in destination is tested right after the backup execution.

The test phase is part of the backup process.
