Macrium Reflect makes it easy to access logs of all types of backups and restores. Logs can be searched for using the 'Logs' tab and directly accessed from backup files in the 'Existing Backups' tabs.
Accessing logs from the 'Existing Backups' tab
Select the 'Existing Backups' tab, select 'Image' or 'File and Folder' and right click on the backup file of interest.
'View Backup Logs' enables all logs to be viewed for the Backup Definition that created the file or the individual backup, either in the Macrium Log Viewer or in your default web browser.
