-are there any manuals available for this product, URL appreciated.
-does the software use the backup history in SQL 2005 e.g if I needed to do a log backup at short notice using management studio, is the software aware of this in the backup history, when doing restores?
-is the software okay mixing its own compressed restores with uncompressed restores e.g compressed backups with uncompressed log file backups from other sources like management studio?
-can the software do uncompressed backups, to save on CPU usage when servers are busy?
-is there a way of remotely checking the backup status, as our servers often have developers using RDP sessions during the day.

There is a help file installed with the SQL Backup GUI.

You can restore a database using both native SQL Server backups and SQL Backup backups.

There is a zero-compression option, but it applies to the entire backup. SQL Backup cannot dynamically change compression levels while the backup is running.

You can use the SQL Backup GUI, or an extended stored procedure ran from Management Studio.
