    WSA Antivirus scheduled scans logs?

    Forgive me if that was already asked.
    Maybe something obvious escapes me, but I don't see the logs (if any) created by the scheduled scans.
    Didn't find anything in the settings about logging either.
    You can save a log to send for Diagnostics, for instance, but this is done manually, on-demand.

    TIA!
    Best regards,
    François

    The logs are stored in C:\ProgramData\WRData\ named res[number].db

    You can save the last log manually (by clicking System Tools - Reports - Save as...) and that will be the most accurate representation of what was detected.

    You may also want to look at the bottom of the scan log when saving it manually as the full history of detections are appended to the end of it.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks.
    Do you plan to make the logs available from within the GUI?
    Right now, it's more for the expert. (having to manually browse for them)

    We currently only have the last scan log available, although that is probably the most relevant one. It might be worth having a scan history in the GUI but we only store the last few log files so I'll have to see how well this will fit.
