    When 2000 Server crashes, where does it store the "physical memory dump" file?

    I have server running on my laptop and had a crash. I know the file it saves is huge, but I can't find it. I want to free up that space.

    What is the file name I should be looking for?:confused:

    C:\winnt It may be in another dir inside winnt. It has been awhile since I had a memory dump. If you have event viewer it will tell you the location.
    The file will have a .dmp extension. Do a search for *.dmp
