    Smile Where is the Spybot Log File?

    I need to retrieve the Spybot log file from an unbootable hard drive (caused by a hardware failure).

    I need to pull out the results of the last Spybot scan. Can anyone please tell me what is the location on the hard drive of the Spybot log file?

    The location of the Spybot log files should be in one of these locations,depending on your operating system:
    Windows 95 or 98:
    C:\Windows\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs
    Windows ME:
    C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs
    Windows NT, 2000 or XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs
    Windows Vista and also Windows 7,I believe:
    C:\ProgramData\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs

    The Checks and/or Fixes log is dated,so you should be able to find the results of your last scan.
    It is in this format:
    Checks.yymmdd-hhmm
    Or:
    Fixes.yymmdd-hhmm

    The Checks log is produced during a Spybot scan,the Fixes log is produced if you fix or attempt to fix something.

    If unable to see ProgramData or Application Data,please show hidden files and folders:

    Default Location of scan logs in Windows 7

    The information above appears to be out of date for Windows 7. I cannot find the scan logs at %systemdrive%\ProgramData\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs, nor under the Users folders. I found no scan logs at any of these locations.

    Spybot runs automatically on my computer while I am sleeping. I need to confirm that it actually ran.

    Hello,

    Which version of Spybot do you run?
    The logs for Spybot 2.1 can be found here:

    Windows Vista / Windows 7 / Windows 8:
    C:\ProgramData\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Logs

    Best regards
