I did a search and looked in the admin tool and couldnt find anything about this. Does anyone know what the numbers are after the name of the backup file? See this image:
It's the time, in military time . . . translation: 11:05 PM.
Ah - interesting. Thanks for the reply. That is what I needed to know.
If I may, I have a follow up question.
I am trying to access a file on my server via a script which is executed on the server. The script always returns a 102 error, it cant recognize my filepath.
I have tried every combination I can think of from
to filemac:/OSX/Library/FileMaker Server/Data/Backups
always a 102 error, it cant find my file.
What is the proper way to reference this backup file if I am performing a script on the server?

Stop right there! Do not touch your backups in this way (even if it were possible). This is the same best practice that also says" "don't open a backup file from its backup folder, first copy it to another location and then open it".
The underlying issue is with the way FMS hard-links files between backup sets. Opening (and changing) one file in one backup set may actually affect multiple backup sets.
But more generically, you never want to change a backup. Opening it runs the risk of changing the data and that renders you backup invalid. Always make a copy before opening a backup set.
+1 on wim's comments. Do not touch files in the backup area except to copy them by complete folders to another disk. Backup links is one issue, plus they are not being served, so FM-clients and FM-scripts should not be able to access them for any reason.

Or just the time as referenced by most of the other parts of the world that don't use AM and PM notations
