When you click on a link to view the log file, the contents of the log file are displayed in your browser, and a link to the location of the file on the Base Monitor computer is displayed.
Emailing log files to Red Gate Support
To download all log files as a .zip file, on Configuration > About, under Diagnostics, click Retrieve all log files. Attach the .zip file to your email to Red Gate Support.
Getting the log files this way keeps the initial log format, which can be checked more quickly and easily than reformatted content.
