Debugging interaction problem between WorkBench and drives may be facilitated by using the built-in logging mechanism.

Where are the application and the log files in your system:

The easiest way to access the application or the log files is to open the About box in WB, it will give you the full path to the application and log folder:


WB has 2 log files:
