Fixing ‘Dump File Creation Failed due to Error during Dump Creation’

The Blue Screen of Death or BSOD usually comes for a fraction of a second, creates a few logs or dump files, as many people call it, and then suddenly restarts the computer. This process is so fast that the user often does not have the chance to read the error code correctly and probably does not have the chance to check what went wrong. Users will receive error messages such as’Dump file creation failed due to an error during dump creation’. These crash dump files are stored internally on the computer and are only accessible by an administrator.

If you encounter an error in the dump file, there are several ways to solve the problem. Read the methods below to solve your problem with the dump file.

Run Check Disk Scan

  1. Press the Windows + R buttons to open the Run dialog box.
  2. Type cmd, then press Enter.
  3. Type the letter of the drive you want to check, followed by a colon like d:, then press Enter.
  4. Go to the root directory of the drive by typing cd\ and pressing Enter.
  5. Enter the following text and press Enter: chkdsk /(Enter the file system you want to check).
    If you want to automatically correct file system errors, use the /f option (e. g. chkdsk /f).
    If you want to correct file system errors and search for and recover the wrong sectors, use the /r option (e. g. chkdsk /r).
  6. At the command prompt, type exit, then press Enter.
