Determining BACKUP source disk?

» close window

The Question is:

Question regarding BACKUP command.
The backup listing displays all files backed up, including the directory, sub-directory etc. However it doesn't show the disk from which it was backed up.  I have the same filename in the same directory on different disks, how do I know by looking at the
backup listing which disk it came from?
I want to backup up similar named files in similar named directories on multiple disks, then destroy the directories and attempt to restore the save set so that it correctly restores the files/directories to the disks they were originally backed up from.

The Answer is :

  By looking at the header record for the BACKUP saveset, or (if desired)
  via the BACKUP remark string...
