Server Crash


Our server crashed for an unknown reason last night.  The techs at the data center tried to reboot it this morning, but it wouldn't boot, even in safe mode.

I told them to go ahead a reimage it, and they mounted the old drive so I could take a look at it and copy files.

I've copied off the files I needed, but I'm interested in taking a look at the event logs and try to figure out what happened.  How do I do this?
1 Solution
By default, the event logs are stored here: %WinDir%\System32\Winevt\Logs

I'm not at home to look, but I believe through Event Viewer you can right click and view other logs, just copy from the old HD, and check them out.
