FS can show you a Log Window reporting a description of the last tasks done, timing, occasional errors... and the current configuration (Settings, Filters...).

• At the end of any task (sync or backup), you can see the log text selecting the menu item "Log" from the menu "Window".


  1. On the Preferences panel you can set FS to save the Log Text to a file, always or only if an error occurred. Also you can set FS to send the Log Text via email to a custom email address, always or only if some error occurred.


  1. The text here below shows a Log Text sample.
