FlashScan V2 maintains an internal buffer of the most recent messages sent to and received from the vehicle. That buffer is stored in RAM memory and is wiped clean each time the device is powered off or rebooted. Therefore you MUST save the trace file before powering off or rebooting the device.
The trace file will be saved in the Scan folder on the device. It will be named USR_xxxx.efx, where xxxx is the unique file counter number.
The trace file can be retrieved by connecting FlashScan V2 to your PC and using EFILive Explorer.
