Every description of the Refresh function I have found says "reloads the backup catalog"
Please elaborate on what that means. Does it mean a complete recreation of the backup is made? If not, does it compare the source with the backup and delete any files not in the source and add any files not in the backup and recreate the database so it reflects the additions and deletions?

No, it just reloads the backup catalog in memory.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
