Ok well I realized it was on kernel dump so i changed it. i replicated the crash. I checked and there is no minidump folder within my windows directory. Instead, I found a file named Minidump that is ~300 MB large within my windows folder. Is that the right file?

Read all this very careful Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

The minidump default location is C:\Windows\Minidump,in this folder find (if you have) the most recent minidumps,zip them and upload them here.
