My C: drive is small, and it's getting filled with .hdmp files from Windows Error Reporting. I've searched, but can't find a way to get it to dump files on my D: drive instead.

Can't... Windows error reporting saves the dumps locally. You can however disable the Windows Error Reporting, and the .hdmp files.

By "local" you're implying that my D: drive is not local, even tho it's a partition on the same drive. Not trying to split hairs, just want to be clear -- you're saying the .hdmp files have to be on the same partition as the windows installation? – davej Apr 20 '13 at 0:18
Yes, on the system drive. – Brandon Lawson Apr 20 '13 at 17:29
