When performing a Verify Data or a Rebuild Data operation, the results are entered into a troubleshooting document stored on your Hosted account.

The file is located in the Q:\Log folder and is named verify_rebuild_data.log.  

Every time you log on to the Hosted platform a new log file will be created and the previous log file renamed.  

The current one will always be named verify_rebuild_data.log and older copies will be renamed with .old1, .old2 etc. added to the file extension.
