VSC 6.2 Backup log entries re: retention


Hello! I've had some requests re: providing artifacts of our VSC backup practices. Our current backup retention is something like "keep eight weekly backups," let's say. One of the requests that I've had amounts to "show us log entries that indicate there was a backup for X volume on Y date five months ago." Obviously that backup isn't there anymore, since the retention policy rolled it off.


I'd like to know if there's some log location (and possibly a string I can search for) that effectively says "Yep, there was a weekly backup on January 6, 2017, and SMVI deleted it as per retention policy." If there isn't such a log, that's good to know, because the requestor will need to know that too. Thanks!
