    Hi Pma11,

    No, System State back does not include the security logs..

    Boot files, including the system files, and all files protected by Windows File Protection (WFP).

    Windows domain system stage back is include the following:

    Boot files, including the system files, and all files protected by Windows File Protection (WFP).
