To edit a backup job, you can understand more about the sets by previewing the set information. To preview the set summary, move the pointer over the information icons in the Job Details area on Manage Job page.

Recent Instances: This table lists the recent instances of the job. It shows the following information: Run time, duration, job size, instance ID, phase ID, and status (Succeeded, Failed, Aborted, and others).
To save your changes or submit the job for scheduling, click Save or click Save & Submit, respectively.
