Feature request: select/copy backup failure details from "Backup Details" window RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I occasionally have backups fail.  When this happens, I find it frustrating that I can't select the text of the failure details from within the Backup Details window in order to copy and paste this into a text editor or forum post.  Can the developers please make this text selectable?  Without this, the text is nearly useless.  I can't scroll down far enough to see the entire letters of the last line of error text.

    I'm sure this text is somewhere else, too, but I intuitively want to copy/handle this text from the Backup Details window.  Thanks!

    I'd love to be able to post a screenshot here so I could demonstrate the problem.
