How to Review the Service Log Files
Each of the Veeam services has its own respective service log file. Often when the service is failing to start for any reason other than permissions, the service will write information that can help with the resolution to its log file.
The service log files are written to C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Backup and have a filename pattern of Svc.<service>.log. You may find it convenient to navigate to that folder, then sort by date modified, then attempt to start the service manually. This will cause the appropriate service log to be easier to identify. Another tip is that after opening the log file, press Ctrl+END to go to the bottom, then begin reading the log from bottom to top, and look for lines containing > Error. Log reading is a skill, one that Veeam Support is trained and ready to assist you with.
