Just ran CCleaner and a it came back with something I've never seen before when using it: a 3+gb memory.dmp file.

What are the reasons for such a large dump file? I haven't had any crashes or lock ups recently. The install is only a few months old...

You must have crashed at one point. The size is basically equal to your RAM plus 1MB.

You can set it to save less information. For more information, see this document on configuring the dump size:
