    It's basically saying that it cannot clear the "Application and Services Logs\Microsoft\RMS\MSIPC\Debug" log in Event Viewer while it's in use.

    Personally, it's nothing to worry about though.

    I would like to save each log's contents before delete. Possible?


    It may have even been here somewhere I started on this thread back in the Windows 7 Forums I think .
    Most seem to be the same commands and most do clean them all but I would love to have a copy of the contents before it is gone forever if possible.

    Hello questorfla,

    You can select a "Windows Log" in the left pane, then select "Save all events as" in the right pane to save them.

    Click image for larger version.

    Thanks Brink


    You are always right on the money !
    I cannot believe i read every post looking for that option to be added to all those that dumped them all.
    On systems that have been in use by others that I have to reload from scratch for a new employee, i want to save everything from the previous users history that I can but would rather the next user started out with zero entries.
    Helps me know later if it is the machine or "human" when the errors show up

    Hello drugo,

    The event logs are stored in the folder below.

    %SystemRoot%\System32\Winevt\Logs
