NovaStor Log Collector Application; for submitting ticket with logs attached

Last Updated: Jun 08, 2017 08:15AM PDT

When submitting a ticket we would prefer to have your full log set to be attached to the ticket especially for a "problem" type of ticket, meaning anything other than just a general question.  Tickets can have logs attached to them and these are the instructions to gather the full set of logs including some system diagnostics that we can use to see what the problem is.  A single ZIP file of the entire set of logs is generated by the simple tool that we provide which is linked below; you run this tool on the system that you are having the problem with that is running NovaBACKUP software.

Since this error could be related to so many different source issues as a first step to get a better understanding of the problem can you follow the steps below to get the log files. We have the NovaStor Log Collector application that can collect System Information and NovaBACKUP Logs to Help us Troubleshoot the issues with NovaBACKUP.

If the log .ZIP file is larger than 9MB in size you can use these free Web based file sharing services to send the log .ZIP file, since the file may be too large to send as an email attachment:
