Then go to System | Diagnostics
Make sure the checkbox next to Logs is checked. Then either select all the logs by selecting the first log then scroll to the bottom and while holding the Shift key click the last log. If there are a specific set of logs, hold the CTRL key while clicking the selected logs.

GMS/Analyzer will sometimes need a few minutes, depending on the amount of data.
