  • Hi luckstart,

    If you do a site collection backup, you can find the backup log in Trace Log (C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS\). But it is not as particular as export log does.

    You can get the backup log located in the backup directory if a catastrophic backup had been performed.

    How about backup the web application in Central Administration, so that you can get a particular backup log.

    You've been posting long enough here to know that you should always use the Question Type when you post.

    Please just leave the default in place every time.

  • Hi Mike,

    I don’t understand what you mean. I pay attention to choose right forum.

    You mean I choose “start a discussion” option?!!!

    For anyone who is not from Microsoft (and only then when they are posting a very rare public announcement), the default Question Type is *always* the correct choice here.
