About the contents and storage of service data files
October 3, 2023
Trace files and dump files are stored on the computer in non-encrypted form for a period of seven days after data logging is disabled. Trace files and dump files are deleted permanently after seven days.
Trace files are stored in the ProgramData\Kaspersky Lab folder.
The format of trace file names is as follows:
KAV<version number_dateXX.XX_timeXX.XX_pidXXX.><trace file type>.log.
Trace files can contain confidential data. You can view the contents of a trace file by opening it in a text editor (such as Notepad).
Performance trace files can be viewed using the Windows Performance Analyzer utility. You can download this utility from the Microsoft website.
