This article covers common and uncommon errors in the Google Vault Extractor. General troubleshooting information is also included.
Important: The Google Vault Extractor requires that you have the .NET Framework version 4.6.1 or later installed on the computer on which you install and run the extractor. To determine the .NET Framework version currently installed, follow the instructions provided by Microsoft: How to: Determine Which .NET Framework Versions Are Installed.
Gathering Troubleshooting Information

- GoogleVaultExport will contain log output from the console regarding the extraction of data from Google Vault.
- UploaderWiz will contain log output from the console regarding the upload of Google Vault content from your local machine to Azure.
Extra log verbosity is an option by adding the following string to GoogleVaultExport.exe.config inside of the <appSettings> key:
- <add key="serilog:write-to:RollingFile.restrictedToMinimumLevel" value="Verbose" />
Before contacting Support, we recommend that you record a trace of the connection from the time you start the Extractor until it stops.
