Hi Doron,

There is an integrity check that is done on completed backups that will tell you if the backup is good or not. It primarily checks to make sure the backup can be unzipped (so isn't corrupt) and certain key files are found within the backup that are crucial (like the .sql file of a backup or the wp-config.php).

Welcome to the forums. Be sure to post your questions in the correct forum and don't forget about the new and improved search function located in the top right of the forum pages.
