Overview

The HDD log is a log file of the hard drive fitted inside a docking station. It functions as a health report of the hard drive, which can be used to identify deviations from expected behavior.

At the moment, HDD logs cannot be obtained for Seon devices.

To obtain the HDD log:

  1. Log in to Evidence Manager.
  2. Expand Docking Stations under Device Manager, and make sure you see the docking station you connected.
  3. Right-click this docking station, and click Get HDD Log. The HDD log file is downloaded to your workstation.
