Windows user account and trace extraction
The Windows user account under which Observer runs and how it is running (that is, as service or application) affects where you may write trace files.
 
The target GigaStor needs disk write permissions to the specified directory or you will encounter a job error.
If the file path is to a local disk on the GigaStor and you are running in service mode, you should not encounter many write permission issues, if any at all.
If the file path is network storage (either a mapped or unmapped location) and you are running in service mode, the GigaStor Windows ‘system’ user account itself needs write permission to that directory. You could encounter write permission errors.
If you are running Observer in application mode, the Windows user account that is logged in and is the owner of the Observer process must have write permission to that directory.
