I am in need to monitor Windows Server Backup on Server 2008 Standard using the email notification feature and PRTG. There is a fix ive seen online: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/70312-monitor-windows-server-backup which i have tried. I cant get any notification in PRTG though. Is there another way to do this?

Thank You.

Which sensor are you using?

Script 1

Script 2

Does it come back with any sensor data, or does it error out?
Have you setup Notifications for the sensor?
