Here's a list of things that can be useful for a bug report:
the \Subnautica folder can be found in
\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\
\Program Files\Epic Games\

1. Your Subnautica\YYYY-MM-DD_HHMMSS folder(s), if it/they exist
2. Your Subnautica\Subnautica_Data\output_log.txt file
3. Your dxdiag (search it from the start menu or use the run box) output saved to dxdiag.txt or similar ("Save All Information" by the exit button on the lower right)

You can upload those to something like Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, etc and post a sharing link. Or you can paste them into and post a sharing link.

If the error might be with your specific save, you can include your saved game slot: it's the Subnautica\SNAppData\SavedGames\slot00xx folder

You can compress the saved game (and/or the error reports if you want) using 7-zip, WinRAR, WinZip, or Windows, just remember, efficiency-wise, it's 7z > rar > zip

Upload the archive somewhere (see above list) and post a sharing link to it.
