    Yes, there too. But for a chkdsk at boot up the event log isn't running yet, so the log is initially written to System Volume Information which is where the Event log picked it up from. Unlike the event log which gets cleared at each feature update, the logs in System Volume Information persist until you reformat the drive.

    Yes, System Volume Information is used for more than just the normal restore points. The built-in Windows system imaging stores data there too.

    Yes, @Bree is correct. I didn't know that either until a year ago.
    However, I like accessing the SVI folder directly, so I have access to everything and note trends when the Feature Update was installed.

    Quicker for me than Event Viewer at times.

    Thanks for that information.

    Some users may not be able to gain access to this log since it is hidden and protected.
    Try first. If no go, here is a fix for that... proceed at your own risk...
    For safety I prefer to leave permissions for System Volume Information at their defaults and untouched. The way I get access to look inside without needing to change anything is to run TreeSize Free as an administrator.

    Should I ever feel a need to delete anything there I'll do it from an Advanced Start Up Command Prompt.
