    Default Total system crash log file...what does it mean?

    Thank you all in advance!

    Can someone tell me what this all means? This is a log file I found on a computer that had supposedly completely failed during an OS update and all data was deleted, but a few days before the date on this log file I found while poking around on the recovered files.

    Does this mean the system was functional and running on the date in question? Could this be a time that somebody went and wiped the hard drive at this time or directly after?

    I think it's a 2010 or 11 Macbook pro 15 inch. Not sure which OS it was using.




    Thanks! It goes on like this forever, I just included the first part.

    I've never seen any log files like that. I have no idea. I haven't spent much time on log files these last few years, seems like they get less and less useful. You can do some searches and come up with an idea of what each entry means, but not sure it will lead to much that will tell you why any particular event occurred.

    I poked around, but did not see anything conclusive.

    What's next? Fresh install? Do you need to try and restore data, or pull it over from a backup?
