I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depends which logs.
Seth SimmonsSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
your question is too vague....
if you are referring to event logs, depends how it is configured
right click on one and select properties; it will give you the maximum log size and what to do when it's full

it says it will overwrite after 20 mb so how I see logs dated back to june 2017
Seth SimmonsSr. Systems AdministratorCommented:
depends how long it takes to reach 20mb
scroll to the bottom to see the oldest log
if it doesn't go that far back, then it's gone
increase the size if you want longer retention going forward
