The Mimecast Synchronization Engine uses the C:\ProgramData\Mimecast Synchronisation Engine location to store log, data, and configuration file data. Please see the table below for a breakdown of which files are stored where.


C:\ProgramData\Mimecast Synchronisation Engine\Logs

Application log files are written to this directory. This directory uses Windows compression by default to save space on disk for log files.

The log files found in the root of this directory are general logs written by the service. Site specific logs are found in the \Logs\ACCOUNTCODE directory, where ACCOUNTCODE is your unique Mimecast Account Code as found in the Administration | Account | Account Settings menu item in the Administration Console.

C:\ProgramData\Mimecast Synchronisation Engine\StateThis directory stores per mailbox state files that are used by the Synchronization Engine to synchronize and replicate data on an incremental basis.
C:\ProgramData\Mimecast Synchronisation Engine\TempThis directory is used to store temporary files needed by the application.
