Can Memory.dmp in C:\Winnt be deleted?

Hi,

This is our Domain controller running Win2k Server.  It is running low on space on the C: drive and I need to by some time until I can re-do the server.  I have a memory.dmp file in C:\Winnt that is almost 700Mb.  I know this file is very useful in troubleshooting system crashes, bluescreens, etc.  But can it be deleted and will it recreate itself if a crash occurs?  Thanks.

you can also turn off the memory dump or set it to dump only a short abbreviated amount of data. Control Panel> system> advanced> startup and recovery> settings> write debugging information box> (drop down box to select the type of memory dump or non at all).
