Where are logs and session files located?

Press “Settings” button in the bottom left corner. In ‘Work folder’ area you can setup a folder for saving sessions and logs.

By default, log files are located at:

C:\Program Files\DBConvert\Program name in LOG folder.

Example: "c:\Program Files\DBConvert\Oracle2MySQLPro\LOG\Oracle2MySQLPro.log"

Sessions are stored at C:\Program Files\DBConvert\Program name in Program name Sessions folder.

Example: "c:\Program Files\DBConvert\Oracle2MySQLPro\Oracle2MySQLPro Sessions"

If you can't find sessions and logs in default directory, probably UAC settings enabled in your Windows Vista/7/8

In this case iles can be located at:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\DBConvert\'program name'

Or, if you run 64-bit system they are at:

C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\DBConvert\'program name'


Synchronization log can be found at: C:\Program Files\DBConvert\Program name\Program name Diffs
Example: "c:\Program Files\DBConvert\Oracle2MySQLSync\Oracle2MySQLSync Diffs"

You should check the "Create Log" option to keep tracking of events occurring to the data during the synchronization process. If the "Capturing the changes between source & destination" option is on, the log will be transformed to Dump file where you can find all generated database queries. When the "Store dump for target database back-up" option is checked, it allows producing a dump that includes the information before changing, i.e. back-up. Please see the screenshot below:


If you need to change machine you should copy the "sessions" folder and .BAT files from the locations mentioned above depending on your OS version and UAC settings. If you need to redefine scheduled tasks, you can copy/export tasks in Windows Scheduler and then paste/import them to Windows Scheduler on the new machine.
