If you find yourself–like me–in the situation that your Mac has crashed and you want to retrieve the crash reports (some call them logs 😉 )? Well, there are basically two ways.
You can look them up with the “Console” tool (find it in
or with Spotlight). Open the “System Diagnostic Reports” section on the left and find an entry similar to
at the top.
You can also find these reports as text files under
with the same names. OS X will open them with the Console tool per default.
