I'm just curious about where make mkv stores log files,also curious about how many log files per title are made?

If you have debug logging turned on, when you start MakeMKV it will tell you exactly where the log file is stored.

There is one log file per session, however many disks you rip during that session.

If you run multiple copies of MakeMKV, each will have its own session log.

Does the old log data get blown away when you start a new session? My log file only seems to have my last successful rip.
Thank you

Yes, the debug logs are overwritten each time you start MakeMKV.
