WIN XP memory.dmp file

Can the memory.dmp file that exists in the windows folder be deleted as its taking too much space - 1.7GB in my

case. Is this file very crucial to the windows operation?

When windows gives a stop or halt error it creates this file for debugging. So if you are not gonna use it for debugging you can safely delete this file.
