I have a question, and I didn't find anything on Google or in the search function.
Where is the location of logs in Event Viewer, when Windows failed to copy files and "interrupted action" appears?

When I was copying a lot of files, I got a problem.
Some of the files got problems and failed to copy. I got that box saying "1 interrupted action - An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file" - with choices of "Try again - Skip - Cancel" a few times.

I clicked "Try again", and it failed, until I decided to skip. But sadly I didn't note the files, and now don't have a clue which files didn't get copied.
And even worse is that I sadly don't have the source files anymore, because I unzipped them already. It is hard to explain, but I can't simply check anymore which files didn't get copied.

I know I made a lot of mistakes in this situation, but this doesn't change the fact that I need to resolve the problem.

The best solution I came up with was checking the Event Manager. But I don't know where to look.
So the main question is: Can someone please tell me where I can find the logs of the dialogue-boxes "Interrupted action"?

I am using Windows 10 Home Edition.

Where did you get the Zip Source file? If you downloaded it, try downloading again. If you unzipped a source file, do you still have the Zipped file? If you deleted it, is it still in your Recycle Bin.
You have to give us a lot more information. If this file came from a different drive on your computer, then the drive may have bad sectors that this file resided on making the file corrupted and not usable. If you still have the source files on another drive, compare them by size and name to the files that you copied to and see what is missing.
