OS: Windows XP

I just disabled windows built-in dumprep.exe in system error reporting and also want to delete all dump files. I've tried to use ccleaner to scan windows > memory dumps but found nothing. It seems not related. Where does Dumprep.exe save dump files?

Normally C:\Windows\Minidump, or search the drive for ".dmp" – Moab Feb 28 '11 at 2:44

Right click on your My Computer icon and choose Properties. Select the Advanced tab and then click the Settings... button in the Startup and Recovery area. This will show you a window with a textbox near the bottom that gives the location of the dump files. It most likely uses an environment variable (%SystemRoot% on my machine, which corresponds to my C:\Windows\System folder).
