As data for a project is captured and transferred to the PC, it is stored on the Hard Drive as a history buffer and maintained according to the settings configured in Acquisition Options. Each project maintains its own history buffer in a sub folder using the same name as the project file. However, the project file does not require the history buffer to be present when opened. This allows the project file to operate as a 'stand-alone' file for sharing or archival purposes. When saving the project file, the currently loaded capture will be the data stored in the project (see also: Acquisition Options).
The history buffer can be accessed utilizing the History Menu, the Browse button or the bar graph. These items are located at the bottom of the main window. When browsing the history, the data for that history item will be loaded and all Signals, Auto Searches, Lists, Tables, etc. will refresh as if the data had just been captured.
Click the Menu button to display the Capture History Menu:
A Left-Click or Right-Click on the browse button will load the previous or next item in the history buffer. Holding the mouse down will repeat the action in the same direction, causing an "Animation" of the history.

Click this button to open the Capture History Search. This allows a search of the entire capture history using any normal search displayed in the Global search or the Search Manager.
