Log file names and locations

The activity, error, and debug log files record events that occur on systems with McAfee products enabled.

All activity and debug log files are stored here:

%ProgramData%\McAfee\Endpoint Security\Logs

Each module, feature, or technology places activity or debug logging in a separate file. All modules place error logging in one file, EndpointSecurityPlatform_Errors.log.
