In SBS Essentials the location of the log files is under C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Server\Logs. From a support perspective this can be very handy as you will always know where the log file will be located. We have compiled a list of important logs and their associated wizards below. Please note that there are a few wizards which refer to one or more logs. C:\ProgramData is hidden by default. Please use Folder Options in Windows Explorer to unhide it.
