Where are crash dump files?


In the event of a Windows operating system crash (Blue Screen of Death or BSOD), all information about the storage is saved in a file on the hard disk. This dump file can help developers debug the cause of the crash. The default location for the dump file is % SystemRoot% memory.dmp , i.e. H. C: \ Windows \ memory.dmp if C: is the system drive. Windows can also capture small dumps that take up less space. These dumps are generated in % SystemRoot% Minidump.dmp (C: \ Window \ Minidump.dump if C: is the system drive). See below for details on crash dump settings. This article applies to XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 10.
