How do I confirm that my Lumia 930 HAS backed-up?


WPCentral Question

I want/need to perform a reset to factory settings on my Lumia 930 (running Denim).
I have already discovered that the "auto upload" of photos does not work - so I have manually uploaded those to my laptop.
I have performed a back-up of "apps and settings", and "text messages", and although it says that this is done - I would like to be able to verify this. If I go to my "One drive" it appears empty.
Where should I be able to find/verify my back-up of "apps and settings", and "text messages" ?
I do not want to perform the reset and then discover that I cannot restore anything

I remember that it is slightly hidden on OneDrive.com settings.

Keep in mind that some apps and games :( don't support backup and you will lose the data anyways.

Open on your browser www.onedrive.live.com and login with your phone credentials.
Tap on Settings (wheel on the right top)
Tap on Options
Now on the left side under OPTIONS tap on "Device backups"
There you see your backup

Good luck

Thanks Harrie-S, I found it. Not exactly intuitive so I don't feel too bad :). I would have thanked you sooner, but it has taken me this long to get registered and logged in (via my Microsoft account) so that I could post.
