Can dump files be deleted?

The only problem is the dump files can take up a whole lot of disk space (usually equivalent to the amount of system memory you have). If you have numerous dump files then it will seriously eat into your available disk space. If so then yes, by all means, delete the dump files to reclaim your lost disk space.

Also know, how do I open a dump file?

Open the dump file
  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
  2. Change to the Debugging Tools for Windows folder. To do this, type the following at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:
  3. To load the dump file into a debugger, type one of the following commands, and then press ENTER:

Where is the dump file?

The default location of the dump file is %SystemRoot%memory.dmp or C:Windowsmemory.dmp if C: is the system drive. Windows can also capture small memory dumps which occupy less space. These dumps are created at %SystemRoot%Minidump.dmp (C:WindowsMinidump.dump if C: is the system drive).
