The ProForma Support team is dedicated to making sure that all requests are resolved as quickly as possible. As part of our support service we might ask for additional files and logs to help us with our investigations, where appropriate. To ensure that this causes as little disruption to your operations as possible, we maintain this list of instructions to generate these files, for your reference.
