How to clear or expand the event log in Ghost 9?

Under Tools->Options->Notifications I tried to configure email notifications. Apparently my smtp server rejected the message.

The problem is that I got an unable to write to the event log because it was full? I don't see anyway to clear the event log or expand it. I have loads of disk space.

I actually found the manual pdf... It mentions the log file in the agent folder where Ghost is installed. I found that and below are the last few entries. ...It's logging that it can't log to the event log? When I get the error it gives the reason as event log full.

I ran the Ghost console, selected advanced view, and selected the Events tab. Events are listed. Clicking on/selecting an event displays some event details in the lower pane. Right clicking on an event does not produce a drop down menu at all (right clicking on a line item in the Backup History does produce a drop down). Is there another event viewer you are referring to?

Yes. That did it.
Odd, I had the system event log set to 512KB and to overwrite events more than 7 days old.
Also odd that it appears Ghost 9 does not write to it's own log if the write to the system log fails.
Oh well, that solved that problem. thanks
