I have rebuilt my file on Accounts Hosted. But there was an error log saved to Z: ....\qbwin.log. How can I access this file as I only have drives of Q: and B:? Thanks

Hey Fiona, welcome to the Community and thanks for reaching out. As the Z: drive is on the server it's it can only be accessed by the Infrastructure staff. If you give tech support a call they can arrange for the file to be provided to you. Cheers, Mirko.
