The Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 log stores the history of actions the software does on a machine or a user does on a machine using the software. For example, when a user edits a task, an entry is added to the log. When the software executes a task, it adds multiple entries saying what it is currently doing.
Local and centralized logging in Acronis Backup & Recovery 10
Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 has local and centralized logs of events.
Local event log
A local event log holds information about Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 operations on a managed machine. For example, creating a backup plan, executing a backup plan, managing archives in personal vaults, executing a recovery task, will generate events logged in the local event log. Physically, a local event log is a collection of XML files stored on the machine. The managed machine local event log is accessible when the console is connected to the machine. Local event logging cannot be disabled.
Operations performed using bootable media are logged as well, but the log’s lifetime is limited to a current session. Rebooting eliminates the log, but you can save the log to a file while the machine is booted with the media.
Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 Storage Node has its own local event log. This log’s events are accessible through the centralized log only.

Ways to open the "Log" view with the pre-filtered log entries
