User Crash Dump Files for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10, and Later

User Crash Dump Files for Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10, and Later

If the WebDrive Service Stops and WebDrive crashes during use, here are steps to generate user-mode crash dump files to be used for debugging.


Windows Error Reporting allows for user-mode crash dump files to be collected when a user application crashes. 


To enable this feature in Windows, navigate to the following location in the registry editor (regedit):


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps


Here there are a few relevant values:


DumpFolder - the path to the location where the crash dumps will be stored. Default is %LOCALAPPDATA%\CrashDumps

DumpCount - Maximum number of dump files stored

DumpType - 1 = mini dump or 2 = full dump
