The log can provide information, for instance, about scheduled backup results, including reasons for any failures.

Most Acronis True Image Home 2011 operations write their own entries in the logs, though logs are not provided for the Try&Decide operation, image mounting/unmounting, Acronis Startup Recovery Manager activation/deactivation, and bootable media creation.

The logs contain only partial information on Acronis Nonstop Backup operations. The remaining information on operation of that feature is written to its own log. That log is not available to users as it is intended for Acronis Support personnel to help in troubleshoot the issues users have with the feature. It is included in Acronis System Report.
