  1. Where are the Windows 10 Event logs stored?


    Does anyone know where the Windows 10 Event Logs are stored? I know you can access them with Event Viewer, but I want to know where it loads them from. Googling didn't help much, as I only got results for Windows 7 and XP.

    :)

    "Where are the development logs for windows 7, 8, 8.1 that will list this as a problem and fix it before the release of windows 10? "

    Anyone want to guess what "this problem" is?

  3. Event logs are spending resources

    This is more a comment as it is a "question". I was able to find out that Windows 10 had been trying to access the card reader "disk drives" quite a while and when it failed it was writing to event logs all the time, constantly. The events were StorDiag
    Operational and Ntfs Operational. The way to "solve" it was disable those event logs, so at least they are not writing on hard disk all the time. Also, third event was Microsoft Windows AppXDeploymentServer Operational with two errors (repeating forever):

    The following packages will be installed: . The following packages will be removed:

    Determining packages to be installed during logon for user: (lots of numbers, not shown here)

    I think it's good to tell about errors, but it's not good when writing log files is becoming a performance issue for the hard disk. At least there should be some kind of limit to logs written for the same event, if it's happening really fast and all the
    time.

    Hi there,
    just open event viewer, right click on the logs area you are interested in and then properties, you ll get the log file path.
