use msdb
select * from backupset
select * from backupfile
select * from backupfilegroup
select * from backupmediaset
select * from backupmediafamily

[2] Backup Information for a Particular database:

===============================================
SELECT s.database_name,
m.physical_device_name,
cast(s.backup_size/1000000 as varchar(14))+‘ ‘+‘MB’ as bkSize,
CAST (DATEDIFF(second,s.backup_start_date , s.backup_finish_date)AS VARCHAR(4))+‘ ‘+‘Seconds’ TimeTaken,
s.backup_start_date,
CASE s.[type]
WHEN ‘D’ THEN ‘Full’
WHEN ‘I’ THEN ‘Differential’
WHEN ‘L’ THEN ‘Transaction Log’
END as BackupType,
s.server_name,
s.recovery_model
FROM msdb.dbo.backupset s
inner join msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily m
ON s.media_set_id = m.media_set_id
WHERE s.database_name = ‘Backup_Sample_DB’ –>Replace your Database Name
ORDER BY backup_start_date

[3] Database Backups for all databases For Previous Week:

=======================================================
SELECT
CONVERT(CHAR(100), SERVERPROPERTY(‘Servername’)) AS Server,
msdb.dbo.backupset.database_name,
msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_start_date,
msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_finish_date,
msdb.dbo.backupset.expiration_date,
CASE msdb..backupset.type
WHEN ‘D’ THEN ‘Database’
WHEN ‘L’ THEN ‘Log’
END AS backup_type,
msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_size,
msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.logical_device_name,
msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.physical_device_name,
msdb.dbo.backupset.name AS backupset_name,
msdb.dbo.backupset.description
FROM msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily
INNER JOIN msdb.dbo.backupset ON msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.media_set_id = msdb.dbo.backupset.media_set_id
WHERE (CONVERT(datetime, msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_start_date, 102) >= GETDATE() 7)
ORDER BY
msdb.dbo.backupset.database_name,
msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_finish_date
 

[4] Most recent Database Backup for Each Database:

=================================================
SELECT
CONVERT(CHAR(100), SERVERPROPERTY(‘Servername’)) AS Server,
msdb.dbo.backupset.database_name,
MAX(msdb.dbo.backupset.backup_finish_date) AS last_db_backup_date
FROM msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily
INNER JOIN msdb.dbo.backupset ON msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.media_set_id = msdb.dbo.backupset.media_set_id
WHERE msdb..backupset.type = ‘D’
GROUP BY
msdb.dbo.backupset.database_name
ORDER BY
msdb.dbo.backupset.database_name
 

[5]  Most Recent Database Backup for Each Database – Detailed:

================================================================

A.[Server],
A.last_db_backup_date,
B.backup_start_date,
B.expiration_date,
B.backup_size,

INNER JOIN msdb.dbo.backupset ON msdb.dbo.backupmediafamily.media_set_id = msdb.dbo.backupset.media_set_id
WHERE msdb..backupset.type = ‘D’
) AS B
ON A.[server] = B.[server] AND A.[database_name] = B.[database_name] AND A.[last_db_backup_date] = B.[backup_finish_date]
