    It has taken away another big chunk of free space. My SSD is down to 7 GBs, I really need someone's help with this problem...

    I always open command prompt as administrator and type in
    Code:
    cleanmgr /sageset:1
    then I check all boxes, and click ok. Then I type
    Code:
    cleanmgr /sagerun:1
    and click ok. It always works.

    Cleaned up an extra 7 gigs. Thanks for that! But the main problem is still there sadly.

    Hi, given that you know - or can determine the location (post above) of these files, then if all else fails, boot to a command prompt, and delete them from outside Windows.

    Hello! I am back. So I have figured something out. I used WinDirStat. And I uncovered that in System32 and SysWOW64 sublocations there are 2 folders (one in each of them) name JxBrowser. They each take up 50 gigs which means that my Windows folder takes up around 120 gigs!!!!! I want to know if anyone has experienced this and if it is safe to delete these files?

    Sure you can delete them, they have no bussiness being there.
    If it is not memory dump by Windows, then it is done by JxBrowser.

    Debugging on Windows : JxBrowser

    Thank you SO much for this! Just got back around 50 GBs of free space!!! It looks like that I can finally get this problem of my mind. You have been a lot of help! I have one last question. Why were these dump files being generated by the jxbrowser? And is there a way to prevent that in the future?

    Maybe some software just used its API, like Steam uses Chromium and there were problems, so it generated that dmp.
