LastBackupFinished vs LastFinished

There are two pairs of two data key/values in the table Metadata for each job that seems to always have identical values:

LastBackupFinished and LastFinished


LastBackup­Started and Last­Started

Why is data duplicated in Metadata?

The LastStarted and LastFinished fields are for any operation (including backup).
The other two are only updated if the operation was a backup.

Ah! I only have only run backup jobs so then all are identical.

Sorry for taking up your time!

I’ve written some code in python extracting data from the different tables and displaying it on a web page in a large common table sortable by column.
