Re: [WIN7] Memory dump

Ok...but that's the point....no files are going to Minidump period. I found how to stop the auto reboot so I can read the whole blue screen.

But...as I said, it's happened this evening a few times and no files after in minidump.

I'll wait for it to happen again I guess

AH, I missed that it had crashed after you'd switched to the minidump setting.

Weird.

The only reasons I can think that might happen involve disk problems: failure to read the crash handler code, or failure to write the dump to disk.

Ah, do you have a page file on C: ? Certainly with full dumps, the dump is written to the page file, and then copied out to the final file after reboot (all this because you don't want a messed-up system doing complicated stunts like creating files). Minidumps are likely handled the same way though I am uncertain of that.
