    If you look at the pick I posted you will see in the Colum on the bottom left you will see five files with a green icon's I displayed them by clicking on the last diagnostic folder, I also think that they are there either from running the command
    perfmon /report
    as administrator in Powershell or Command prompt, like I said in my post I ran that command about 5 times in both powershell and command as admin so it was either on of the 2 that produced those results

    Just looked on Microsoft web site for the command line switches:
    Tip:Command-Line Options for Faster Access to Performance Data
    The following options give greater control of Perfmon.exe directly from the command-line:

    perfmon /rel Lets you review your computerís reliability and problem history (the same result as right-clicking the Monitoring Tools node in Performance Monitor and selecting View System Reliability).

    perfmon /report Collects performance data for 60 seconds and then generates and displays a system diagnostics report.

    perfmon /res Opens the Resource Monitor (the same result as right-clicking the Monitoring Tools node in Performance Monitor and selecting Resource Monitor).

    perfmon /sys Opens the Performance Monitor in stand-alone mode (the Sysmon.ocx ActiveX control).

    An additional option, /comp, allows for comparison overlay between two open instances of Performance Monitor.

    Note that these options are for use with Perfmon.exe but not for use with Perfmon.msc.

    When I run perfmon /report I get an error:

    This was run from a Elevated Command Prompt.

    Some times it takes a few tries. Or try after you boot/reboot. Also you have to be using an administrator account(it will not work if you are using a standard account that some use for security reasons).
    If my computer has been on a few hours it sometimes takes 3-5 tries.

    What generates the reports?
    Expand Data Collector Sets/System. Right click on either 'System Diagnostics' or 'System Performance' and then click 'Start'. Go down to Reports/System where you are now and see report by date.
