The script is very cool, as it will tell you the backup information, from a database. All you need to do is change this ‘<DATABASENAME>’ to yours database name, example ‘MASTER’.
It will also include if a job where COPY ONLY, and where the backup is save.

You can see in the screenshot below, that someone have run a full backup and save it on the D:\ drive, but it where a copy only so the backup is not broken.
