Very large dump file

Hello,

I just noticed this huge dmp file(26.75GB) and can't remember what happened that might have caused this.

Any way to find out what happened?

Also, is there a "special" way to delete it or I can simply right click > delete without risk?

Thank you

It might be from a thread/memory leak issue we're currently working on. It's safe to just delete that dump file. Can you also try this test build?

I can try this build.
Want me to try and force a crash (or whatever needs to be done) to recreate a new dump?

Nah that's ok, the crash was likely due to a threading/memory leak issue that we should have fixed in this build, so as long as it doesn't crash, it should be fine

Same here. Win10x64, 32Gb DDR4 RAM, GTX 1080, 88Gb free SSD space, Display Fusion 9.0 (Steam). Was consuming 33Gb of RAM total (with swap).
Any dump of smth needed (and where should I find it)?

@Javier and @Eugene: No logs or dumps needed, just update to 9.1 Beta 2, as we've fixed the memory leak in that version

I see this is an old thread. But I just bought DF a few days ago on Steam. It crashed the first time I tried it. I think because I set one of my monitors to use a video as the wallpaper. I reinstalled it, and remove that video wallpaper.

Today I noticed that I have 2.5gb of C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Local\Binary Fortress Software\DisplayFusion\CrashDumps files for DisplayFusion.exe. All of them are from Sunday when I installed this.

From what I have read here I can delete these? Each of the 4 files is 500-600MB.
  • Why so big?
  • Is this memory leak fixed?
  • And do I need to keep an eye on this folder if I start running out of drive space? (that's what got me looking for space today)

We've actually fixed a couple of memory leaks in the latest 9.4 Beta versions. You can update by enabling the "Check for new beta versions" option on the Settings > Options tab.

You can safely delete the crash dumps in that folder, and typically there shouldn't be any files there. If you continue to have issues with it crashing, definitely let us know in a new thread please :)

Thanks!
