Windows 7: Why does my Minidump folder keep emptying?

Why does my Minidump folder keep emptying?

Something keeps erasing the dmp files from my minidump folder.

I have already added the "AlwaysKeepMemoryDump" code to my CrashControl registry, but I looked this morning, 6/26 and the mimidump folder is empty. On Sunday I had four or five dmp files in there. I was trying to up the OC on my CPU Sunday morning and I got four or five BSOD's, all of them were there Sunday night, 6/20 and now there are all gone.

Here is my CrashControl registry and my Startup & Recovery settings.

I would really like to stop having my dmp files deleted from my minidump folder.

Please help!

Are you using CCleaner?

Yes I am using CCleaner, are you telling me that CCleaner erases what is in the minidump folder?

If that is the case can I tell CCleaner to not erase what is in the minidump folder?

Thanks ttran, CCleaner was erasing them and you can tell CCleaner to exclude the minidump folder in the options menu.

You are welcome. I'm a pre-med major but I'm glad I can find exact disease in this case. Nice
