    Analysing logs

    1. A backup log starts with the product and task info:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
      <log uuid="AB05C254-CAD6-4751-AF9A-2C3BD5A473E5" product="True Image" version="18.0" build="5539" task="375880D2-AE15-4F4E-A7E1-5611FF669B72" task_name="Test" >
    2. Then operations are listed:
      <event id="1" level="2" module="100" code="2" time="1412956537" message="Operation Test started manually." />
      <event id="2" level="2" module="100" code="0" time="1412956537" message="Operation description: Stage Description." />
      <event id="3" level="2" module="316" code="0" time="1412956538" message="Operation: backup“ />
    3. Then service information goes, just ignore it:
      <event id="6" level="2" module="515" code="0" time="1412956540" message="k:\5539\network\astorage\client\address_resolver.cpp:81: DNS resolved: cloud-fes-eu1.acronis.com ->" />
    4. Find the text error message
      <event id="98" level="4" module="23" code="2065" time="1412956544" message="Nothing to back up." line_tag="0xC4A6B3A72E37E56E" >
    5. <event id="103" level="4" module="316" code="5" time="1412956544" message="Operation has completed with errors." line_tag="0x9F2C53C72E8BCDDE" >
