Cannot read log files , help

Hi all ¡¡
 
I would like to download log files using CLI. I use the command : #execute backup disk log tftp 10.X.X.X event
 
When I try to open this files with notepad++ or notepad/word, I can't read correctly it. There are a lot of special Characters. I hace tried to rename it to .txt and .cvs (it has not format the file).
 
How can I read it please? Maybe I need an special viewer?
 
Regards ¡¡¡

    Hello,
     
    I do use Fortigate90D and also did roll backup to FTP server. 
    Log successfully sent to FTP server however, when I open any file, I get special character and cannot open just as escubi's issue. 
    I have researched and found this article but this looks like applicable to Forti Analyzer. 
    https://kb.fortinet.com/kb/documentLink.do?externalID=FD35404
    Has anyone encountered this issue? How can we open the backed up logs from Fortigate?
    My FortiOS is V6.04

    Actually I have found the solution. 
    You need to use third party tool to read lz4 file. 
     
    Please refer to this link:

    Once I have run this tool, it is now readable!
     
    Hopefully this helps.
     
    Regards,
