How do I recover my test data if my TestSuite test crashed or shut down prior to it finishing the Export Data activity?

PROBLEM

 

How do I recover my test data if my TestSuite test crashed or shut down prior to it finishing the Export Data activity (Figure 1)?

 

Figure 1 – Export Data activity

 

 

ANSWER

 

Select the test run it was on when it crashed.  If you see the test run you can right-click and select Export Raw Data…(Figure 1).    

 

Figure 1 – Manually using the Export Raw Data… process

 

Afterwards, go to your raw data file directory and retrieve it.  The default raw data file directory is C:\MTS TestSuite\Data Files (Figure 2).

If the buffer was small enough that it was writing most of the data throughout the test you should recover most of it before the crash or shutdown occurred.
