View Full Version : Video Converter Debug Log file location

06-15-2020, 06:34 AM
I had a power outage a few hours ago which restarted my pc.

I was well into a multi-day test encode of my Music file collection using the Video Converter. (I'm testing that with a Custom FFmpeg command, rather than using the customary Music Converter). That may change in the future. It's a lot slower, but after modifying the filters, it works well with both audio and video files, which I couldn't do with the Music Converter alone.

Anyway, due to the power outage I lost the log file that was being generated from the encodes. Refer to my "Information log.png" example image below...

Can someone please tell me where that log file may be hiding? I'm not sure if it would have gotten corrupted during the sudden power-down, and have been erased by Windows upon the reboot, but I need to know whereabouts they normally reside please? I did a system-wide search but couldn't locate them.

Was this displayed info just a temporary in-RAM log?

That's what I'm thinking.

If that's the case, then it'll be gone for good, but at least I kept regular savings of it, so I've only lost a few hours of log entries.

The information log is not saved to hdd.

OK. Thanks Spoon. As I thought, but had hoped not.

Anyway, there's one for my wish-list... Info Log file auto-saved periodically to HDD. ;)
