E-Mailing Snapshot Files

E-mail a snapshot using the following procedure:‪

  1. Identify the filenames of snapshots to send. Typically the snapshot files a user creates are saved in the C:\Detroit Diesel\Diagnostic folder. If this folder was used to store snapshots, view the snapshots available by going to Diagnostic Link , opening up the Snapshot drop-down menu, and selecting Open . See Figure "Snapshot Drop-Down Menu" and Figure "Available Snapshot Files from Diagnostic Link " .

  2. Write down the names of the files to send and close Diagnostic Link .
  3. Open up the file manager on the C:\ drive, and locate the Detroit Diesel folder. See Figure "Location of the Detroit Diesel Folder on the C:\ Drive" .

    Note: The user may choose a different location when the files are created so this location is not always used. The user can also do a search for file names using the snapshot file extension “.ddl” to locate all the snapshots on their computer.
