How to transfer log files to SOS?

How to attach log files to trouble tickets?

When using our trouble ticket system you can attach files. You can attach the files in the initial support request and in an answer you send us. The maximum file size is 16 MB. However it is possible to attach more than one file of the maximum size to one message.

How to split large log files?

If you want to send files that are larger than the maximum size of 16 MB then you can split them into several volumes, e.g. by using 7-Zip.

What to do if none of the above recommendations works?

Please, get in touch with us. We will find a way how to receive your log files.
