memtest86+ log file?

I've been reading up on memtest86+, and it is advisable to let it run overnight. Does it create a log file that I can access to see what was found and where?

Memtest should be run for at least 6-8 passes. How long it takes depends on your system specs. It doess not give a traditional log file that you can "access" but when it finishes there will be a summary on the screen. As long as you dont reboot it will be there

I allowed memtest to run for 20 hours (11 passes) and it never showed any signs of giving any kind of a summary or ever coming to any end.
When it started in on the 12th pass, I stopped it; but I could see no way to stop it other than by hitting esc (reboot). Even then, I had to quickly get into the BIOS to change the boot order so it wouldn't just keep running over and over from the beginning.

It would run until it was stopped by the user(you) or it found an error. 20 hours and 11 full passes means your RAM is perfect. Enjoy!
