How to determine if/when System Cleanup tool was last run

Thread needs solution

Hello everyone.  I have a computer running Windows 10 Home with Acronis True Image 2017.  Acronis comes with a System Cleanup Tool (TrueImageTools.exe /system_cleanup)

Is there a way to determine when/if the System Cleanup Tool was run on the computer?

I think I read somewhere that Windows 10 does not have the ability to log when a .exe was run.  Is that true?

When the Acronis System Cleanup Tool is run, does the tool write any log files where I can determine when/if the tool was run?

If I have a backup job setup to run on a schedule, does Acronis automatically run the System Cleanup Tool before the backup?

Thanks in advance.

Bryan, welcome to these public User Forums.

The Acronis System Cleanup tool does produce a log when it is run - the log can be found in C:\ProgramData\Acronis\TrueImageHome\Logs\ti_tools as ti_tools.0.log (at least it is on ATI 2021 on my PC).

The tool is only launched manually by the user, there is no option to schedule its use and it is not invoked as a part of any backup task execution.

One of the tool options cleans user credentials which if enabled (which it is by default) could cause your backup tasks to fail if it cleans the credentials used by that task for a network drive etc.
