File Extension HDMP

File type: Windows Heap Dump File

About the HDMP file type:

Invalid file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your Windows PC. It is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other slowdown issues.

When a program running under Windows XP/Vista crashes, an uncompressed dump file is created which contains the details of the state of the program at the time it crashed along with other valuable system data that has been recorded at the time the error had occurred. These files are then compressed and saved as .MDMP (minidump) files and these can be sent to Microsoft to help them debug the errors in the code that had caused the crash. This file should not be opened by the user. To enable the error report to be sent to Microsoft, one can edit the registry settings at "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting."
