I can't access this log file for some reason. This is what I have tried so far:
- run prompt: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
- notepad: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
- elevated cmd: C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6002] Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:\Windows\system32>C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log Access is denied. C:\Windows\system32>
What am I missing? How do I access this file?
I am trying to view this log as part of a system file checker operation. It has found corrupted files and it clearly indicated that I can find the log in this location.
Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
But for some unfounded reason Windows doesn't allow me to view this file. Why?...
