When creating a request to Kaspersky technical support, you may be asked to collect and attach trace files that may help find the step at which an error occurs.
Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security writes the information to trace and dump files unencrypted. The folder to which the files are saved is selected by the user and controlled by the settings of the operating system and Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security. You can configure the permissions and allow access to log folders, trace and dump files only for the selected users.
