Missing crash dump files in Windows 7.
« on: December 22, 2012, 11:12:38 am »
I've faced with some situation when my Windows 7 crushed and to investigate about it, I've to find memory.dmp file.
 But the problem is sometimes it doesn't appears. In order to fix it follow these instructions:-

 Click Start > Right-click on Computer > Properties > Advanced System Settings > Startup and Recovery Settings. Take
 a look that "Write debugging information" is not set to None. And Dump file location is
 default "%SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP".

 If all things are fine than most probably your free hard drive space is less than25GB. And so Windows will not keep a crash dump file during crashes. But again, you can you can change this settings. In order to do these follow these instructions:-

 Start > Run > Type regedit > Okay
 Navigate to:-

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\CrashControl

Create a new DWORD value called AlwaysKeepMemoryDump and set its value to 1.
 Your crash dump file will always be preserved in future crashes.
