Windows 7: Does Minidump contain editor/word doc content?

Does Minidump contain editor/word doc content?

Assume I work currently with MS Word and/or an text editor like wordpad.
Then (suddenly) the system crashes with bluescreen.
A Minidump is automatically created and saved in a Minidump file.

After restart I am asked whether I want to send this minidump for further investigation to MS.

Hmm, I wonder whether this Minidump file contains the full memory content.
And if the memory content contains the current MS Word resp. current open file if editor.

Both could contain sensitive business information which I don't want to pass outside.

Is this possible?

While anything is possible, mindump ( and memory) are written to your page file so that when the computer is restart it can be written to a file. If in your page file you have sensitive data there is very little chance of it being sent. Why would you want to send them to MS anyway.
