User Logs and Log Viewer

User Logs and Where to find them

Copy-Paste Migration and Backup uses one global system log file location C:Users\(UserName)\Essentials\.metadata and is named .log.
.log - is the log file updated whenever Essentials an operation. this file has a size limit of 1mb, once this limit is reached a new .log is created and the old one is renamed to .bak_0.log. Only 10 of these files will exist at one time, after which the first will overwrite itself.

Migration and Backup  .xml  logs are stored in C:Users\(UserName)\Essentials\.metadata\appLog
