Unfortunately, even the best software can unexpectedly crash, and Cyotek products are no exception. When a crash occurs, you will be offered the chance to report this to Cyotek for investigation and potentially corrected in a future update to the product.
Opting to report a fatal crash
When a fatal crash occurs, the Cyotek Crash Reporter dialogue will be automatically displayed. To submit the report to Cyotek
- Ensure the Tell Cyotek Ltd about this crash so they can fix it is checked

Clicking the Details button will display a dialog that contains the entire report that will be submitted to Cyotek.
