Event viewer application log not updating
And, can you check the event log to see if any errors are being recorded when attempts are made to write to it?
Last week our Application Log appeared to be corrupt. Edit: Problem appears not to be an isolated incident.
By Woody Leonhard Every Windows 10 user needs to know about Event Viewer.
Windows has had an Event Viewer for almost a decade. At its heart, the Event Viewer looks at a small handful of logs that Windows maintains on your PC.
With the Retain Old Events policy setting enabled, the Event Logging service stops writing new events to the event log when the log file reaches or exceeds the maximum value and you lose all new events.
In Event Viewer, both the application log and the system log contain errors, warnings, and informational events that are related to the operation of Exchange Server, the SMTP service, and other applications.
