A backup system includes backup application software operating on a host computer, which is configurable to store data to be backed up to a backup apparatus. The system is configurable to schedule and enact a pre-backup check, prior to running the actual scheduled backup job so that any faults which have developed since the initial configuration can be remedied. The pre-backup check preferably occurs on a daily basis prior to every scheduled backup job.
