Download the audit log files to Device Manager - Storage Navigator computer to prevent the old data from being overwritten. It takes from one to five minutes to download the audit log file.

Do not download the audit log file to the Device Manager - Storage Navigator computer if the audit log is set to be transferred to an FTP server. Some information may not be transferred to the FTP server because the line counter resets when the audit log file is manually downloaded. Download the file only when the FTP server has failed and cannot receive the audit log file. If you want to transfer the audit log to the FTP server after downloading the log, transfer it manually. See Manually transferring audit log files to FTP servers for more information.
