Physical dump memory - File Memory.dmp

December 2016

Whenever there is a problem with the system, operators like Windows NT, 2000 and XP begin to dump the contents, files and copied elements of the RAM. Firstly a file is created, which is known as Memory.dmp. It is generally of a very big size as it contains the dumped items before the crash of hardware. Once the system is opened, the reboot takes place. If the reboot occurs in a correct way then it is very easy to delete all the files securely and safely. Now it is ready to display as the default window under the <a href='/s/Memory.dmp'>commands of the c\ windows\memory.dmp.

Under the following operating systems (Windows NT / Windows 2000 / Windows XP), during a big crash of the system, the system proceeds to a dump which consists of copying the contents of memory (RAM) in a file on the hard disk.
  • The file created, named Memory.dmp is usually of big size because it contains all the data in memory before the crash.
  • You can securely delete this file if the system works correctly after reboot.
  • It is set as default Windows directory under:


C: \ Windows \ Memory.dmp
