Information about the .log2 (log2) file type

This is one of two possibilities that we have on file for the .log2 file extension, follow this link to view both possibilities.

Below is all the information we have available on file about the .log2 (log2) file type.

.log2
Windows Registry hive log file. The .log2 file is used to record the changes made to one of the Windows Registry hives.

This file (together with a .log1 file) will be found in the folder %SystemRoot%\System32\config. The exception to this is the user data hive (ntuser.data.log2) which is maintained separately for each user in %UserProfile%.

Where this is available we would like to include file format information on .log2 files, as well as information on how to view or open files of type .log2. If you know of any information which we have missed then please let us know.
