@Anna9 Windows Error Reporting is about applications, about the crashes of applications: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/wer/about-wer https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/wer/using-wer I browsed those pages and neither BSODs nor dump-files for BSODs are mentioned. There is known issue with the dump-files when user configures page file not on the system partition (so that there is no page file on the system partition). Here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/130536/windows-does-not-save-memory-dump-file-after-a-crash PS You should see BSOD error in the System log, it can reference not the sys-file, but any application. See the checkbox "Write an event to the system log" You don`t have to search or filter, just clean the System log and then reproduce the BSOD. And the path for small dump directory - I changed it namely because I moved page file from the system partition to another one. My rig has no BSODs for a long time so I am not sure that Windows actually respects that changed path.
