My server setting has 2 pagefiles defined, in C and D (logical drives). Since the C drive runs out of space, I set the memory dump path to d:\memory.dmp instead of default %systemroot%\memory.dmp.
The problem is whenever the system generates memory dump (BSOD), the memory.dmp file will not be created eventhough the disk space is sufficient.
I suspect this is because I still have C:\pagefile.sys. Can I delete the c:\pagefile.sys and what is the best and correct method to do it. Is this a recommended way to dlete the file, or there's some other ways to overcome the memory.dmp file creation. Pls help.
