Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.


History & Activity Logs


History Window from tollbar Windows buttonThere are three history windows: Summary, Details and Errors. Each has a separate pane in the Results Window and each can be recorded to disk individually.

By default FileBoss displays the history windows at the bottom of FileBoss' application window. This docking window can be docked to any side of FileBoss' main window, floated anywhere on your desktop or turned on and off using the Window > History Window main menu command (or Ctrl-W).

Or click on the History entry in the Windows drop down button menu. 

Note: Entries are recorded even when the History Window is not open. So if you want to see what just happened you can open the Results Window and any recorded actions will be there.

Automatic error display

Whenever an unreported error occurs during a copy or other recursive operation the Errors window will be displayed at the end of the operation with the appropriate error messages displayed in red.

Setting Up the Result Logs

How the Result Logs are displayed and recorded to disk can be setup using the Result Logs Options Page shown below. To display this options page simply use the Options > Program Options... command from the main menu and select the Results Logs panel.
