I don't have this folder Minidump

Hello everyone,


when I use computer yesterday the blue screen showed me and I go to "C:\Windows" to search about this folder Minidump but I didn't find it then I go to Run and typed

C:\Windows\Minidump

it said there is not folder.

Search for *.dmp. It may also be in c:\windows and be called memory.dmp. You might want to change Kernal to small memory dump.

Have you enabled minidumps? Looking at your picture the red settings below are wrong.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.

The .dmp files are located at C:\Windows\Minidump. Until a .dmp file is generated, the Minidump folder may not exist.
