Unable to verify a backup job if Before and After commands are run.

For a scheduled job running as a service to a network NAS, I find I have to map a drive as the service is not accepted otherwise. So I create a Map_Drive script to be executed 'Before' and Unmap_Drive script executed after, but the problem is the 'After' appears to be after the backup and not the verify.

Would be useful to have the changed or a separate run Before/After command for the verify.

Or, credentials to be stored in the job to connect to NAS without the need to map a drive. ;D
