We have an encryption policy here and I'd like to be able to report for machines that have PGP installed, the last date that windows backup (e.g. from enterprise or pro) ran on that system. The idea eventually is to create a nag message something like: "Hey, you are encrypted and that requires backup. Connect your encrypted backup drive please."

If you are truly talking about windows backup and using kace you can create a custom inventory rule to read the ntbackup log file. 


If not kace any scripting could read it as well. 

Default location is 

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data

  • Yes, we're using KACE and talking about Windows Backup. Your location is for XP, no?
