Hi,

If in simple recovery mode, and not much current activity in the database, of course the transaction logs would be empty.

Whereabouts in SSMS? Can you provide a screenshot of what exactly you are looking at?

Many thanks

Hi,

Can you navigate to the actual logs and open them from windows instead of SSMS?

What do you get then?

Regards
  David

PS Logs are in the log folder off the instance directory.
