I have a Windows 7 BSOD crash dump of almost 900 mb, and I would like to produce a mini dump from it. Is there a tool for that?
A dump can be converted with WinDbg:
- Open the full dump
You can automate this task by using
cdb instead of
windbg and pass commands via the
-c "<command>" command line switch, e.g.:
cdb -c ".dump c:\debug\dumps\small.dmp ; q" -z c:\debug\dumps\big.dmp
q ensures that
cdb quits after re-dumping.
"The resulting MEMORY.DMP file can be quite large. However most of the contents are zeroed memory, so it should compress (With WinRAR for example.) to a much smaller size.
A one gigabyte memory dump will usually compress down to 100-300 megabytes, which will allow for much easier transfer across the network." from here
