    Unhappy

    Does anyone know what the DmpLogs directory is for? On my system it is located here: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\DmpLogs

    I currently have over 50 files in this directory. All from yesterday after 2 PM. They all seem to contain the same "process dump" information. I had no system errors or failures yesterday.

    Anyone?

    Are you sure that is the correct name? There is no mention whatsoever of this folder in Google or the newsgroups...

    I've been searching for any information on this all morning and haven't been able to find a thing. That's why I posted in the lounge this morning. I was hoping someone had seen this before.

    I'm sorry, I have no idea why someone would be dumping polychlorinated dibenzofurans in your Office...

    Have you tried peeking inside with a text editor?

    Yes. It shows a list of processes. We think that this directory may contain some sort of reference files for our document management system. We just haven't seen it before and we don't understand why there are so many files, some all created at the same time & containing the same information.
