The Act Scheduler records each task in the Scheduler_Log.xml file. We want to keep an eye on the success and failures of the Scheduler, specifically when it comes to making backups.
Does Act record its backup status, such as the date of the last successful backup, anywhere in SQL? Is all of that information stored in the scheduler log?

This information is stored in the Act! Scheduler XML files as you suspected and not in the ADF file.
Even the last backup date shown in Help > About > Database Information is queried from the master database as far as I'm aware.
In Act! v16 and above the scheduler has the ability to e-mail a recipient with the tasks outcome.
The following guide tells you how to set this up: kb.swiftpage.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/36113
I hope this helps.
