Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

We seem to be missing application logs in event viewer. The log just shows 0 messages. I came across some information attributing this issue to corrupted log files, I cleared the log but the issue is still not resolved. Other Windows Logs areas are working fine.

Anyone come across something similar or can suggest things to try?

Try saving the log to a file first before clearing it.
