Memory Dump file takes up a lot of disk space

  1. hey

    I have windows XP pro. A few days ago while downloading something i accidentally shut the screen of my laptop. i got the blues screen (BSOD) and it then started dumping memory. My C drive had about 1.2 GB free. When i rebooted the machine, i had only about 150 MB free. This obviously isnt good. Can someone help me and tell me where to look for the memory dump file. I searched for *.dmp files on C and all i got were small files (under 64 K).

    Can someone please advise??

    I can't explain the loss but I think it would be a very good idea to post with your minidumps attached.
