HD capacity loss with WebMatrix RRS feed

  • Question

  • User379720387 posted

    Purely FYI.

    Apparently WebMatrix is crashing several times a day and creates an almost 1GB .dmp file.

    I was looking at what was consuming my hard disk capacity and found out that there is 50GB of Webmatrix crash logs

    Each file is about 800 - 900 Mb and there are 50 of them dating back to December 4, 2015

    WebMatrix__PID__4944__Date__12_09_2014__Time_10_53_20PM__270__Ntdll!ZwTerminateProcess.dmp

    Sometimes there are several of these files on a day.

    I have posted this question on the IIS forum, but I thought I mention it here.

    Well, figured it out.

    A few months ago Microsoft had installed a debug diagnostic tool to aid with troubleshooting not starting.

    It has generated diagnostic dumps pretty much every day, each about 900 Mb.

    Was never turned off.

    Hello wavemaster,

    How did you install this diagnostic tool? How did you use that?
