crashdumps log files keep generating RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,


    We currently have a weird problem with our SCCM. 

    There is a folder  D:\SCCM BakUP\HKGBackup\SiteServer\SMSServer\Logs\CrashDumps 

    It creates 60+GB logs each day for no reason. We have not made any changes to SCCM configuration recently.

     I have tried to  removed those logs but they keep coming back…and some of the logs are dated back to June, 2011..

     How can I stop the logs generating?


    Please help.

  • Did you check the log file details? I

    I think, this is your backup location. I would suggest you to move the crashdump folder from the actual configmgr LOG folder (may be, Microsoft Configuration Manager\Logs)? That will resolve the problem..

  • You should remove it from their orignal location (ie program files\ configuration manager\logs). Logs files are backuped by SCCM backup task that the reason you can find it in your backup location.
