Hi Experts

I know this question has been asked before and probably for some been answered. I have followed some steps, but did not get to the goal.

I will probably have a dispute with my employer about working times and thus would need a proove when I loged in and loged out again. So I could proove my working times and the employer could not say I did not work less than I actually have.

Now, is there a way that I can find the login times from January 09 till now? I only found the ones for the last few days.

Thanks for your help, I really depend on these logs!

Cheers

Ronnie

Not unless you set something up to log these.

You may find some details for log on times in the Security Log on the Domain Controller(s), but those logs tend to be busy and are unlikely to go back for more than a few days to a week. Log off times are not logged at all.

Thanks for the very quick reply! On the computer itself I found the logs from the 29.3. on, have saved them now. Can you think of anything else that could prove my working times? any other logfiles from stuff like outlook?

Cheers

Not as a history, they might give you last write times (last modified under "C:\Documents and Settings" is useful to discover who was last on a PC for instance), but a comprehensive history is unlikely to be available unfortunately.

Thanks for the quick answer eventhough the problem is not solved as there is no way to do it :-( hopefully my boss will not make a big trouble about this!
