What Happens to Files When You Update Device Applications

Last Modified: August 30, 2021

When you update applications on a device, the device deletes log files (including the tracelog) and configuration files.

To manually retrieve any type of file from the device disk, NI recommends using WebDAV, a protocol that enables you to securely manipulate files on your target, to retrieve files. Files on the device are located at /home/lvuser/natinst/LabVIEW Data/InsightCM.

For information about configuring WebDAV on a host computer and transferring files from the device, visit and enter the Info Code WebDAVTransfer to access the NI support document Using WebDAV to Transfer Files to Your Real-Time Target.
