Windows 7: Why is event viewer not logging some events

03 Nov 2012   #1

Why is event viewer not logging some events

When I open EV and browse to Applications and Service logs/microsoft/windows/backup I find an empty log. The properties show the log is enabled. I do weekly backups so there should be entries here. I get the same for almost all of the (enabled)logs, empty logs. However one or two do have some info (ie Bits-Client)
I also have no entries for Hardware events
Am I missing something?
