- log filesearch for term
One of the three types of files produced by each backup session. The other two are Data file and Error file. Log files are placed in a directory on the host server and accessed through the SBACKUP "Main Menu" screen. The log files are labeled with the same description given the session. Both log and error files contain information such as the session's date, time, and media identification, but the error file also contains a list of any errors that occurred during the backup session, such as files that were not backed up.
