- The Admin activity window will now run. The diagnostics utility searches the system for specific EEE and EFDE files. It does not read, catalog, analyze or store anything relating to other files, unless if they are .dat files. In these instances, the file will be read to determine if it matches our specific header and ignored otherwise.
- Once the diagnostics utility has completed, a .zip file will be created on the Desktop with a filename beginning eediag_log followed by the current time and date in UTC format.
The diagnostics utility gathers information about the machine’s configuration and the user’s settings. Information regarding the machine’s Full Disk Encryption and the server cloud packets are kept in an encrypted state, which are inaccessible by anyone outside of your organization.
