I am trying to find the location of the sql backup log files on Windows 2008 R2. They used to be in a Windows 2000 OS located -->> C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Log.

Can someone tell me where they are located now?

Thanks. :wink:

    Thank you for your post into the forum.

    By default on a Windows 2008 and 2008 R2 Server, Windows Vista and Windows 7, you will find the SQL Backup Log Files in this directory:
    C:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Log\<SQL_Instance_Name>

    Alternatively the path to the SQL Backup Log files can be found via the'Server Options' in the SQL Backup GUI.
    Right Click Server Name ->Select Options... ->File Management tab ->SQL Backup log files section ->Log file folder: text box contains the path to where the log files are located.

    You can also change the location of the SQL Backup log files via the Server Options.

    I hope the above answers your question.

    Many Thanks

    Is there any tsql or powershell script so that we can get the result in one go.


    Thanks in advance
