Well, you have to specify a log file first before you can read it; robocopy doesn't create one by itself ...
use the /log:YourLogFile.log option to overwrite an existing log or /log+:YourLogFile.log to append to an existing log file.

Nope, sorry.
If you still have the console window open in which you started the job, and the history is long enough, you might be able to copy and paste the contents from there, but there's no default log file written.
