    Windows upgrade log files


    Where can I find the upgrade log files? I have an empty space on my start page. I would like to know what was deleted.

    The log files are typically challenging to decode as many of the messages are ambiguous and there are many codes that need to be decoded.
    Open file explorer > click view > check hidden items > click this PC > C: > in the right upper corner search for the Panther logs:

    PANTHER logs
    C:\Windows\Panther
    setuperr.log
    setupact.log
    Setupmem.dmp
    setupapi.dev.log
    BlueBox.log
    Event logs (*.evtx)
    C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Rollback
    $Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback\setupmem.dmp
    $Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback\setupapi\setupapi.dev.log
    $Windows.~bt\Sources\Rollback*.evtx
    $Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther\UnattendGC
    miglog.xml
    Windows\Logs\Mosetup
    Setupapi.offline.log
