Windows 10: Why are there "System error memory dump files" in Disk Clean-up?

    Why are there "System error memory dump files" in Disk Clean-up?


    I am running Windows 10 Pro. My system is running perfectly. There are zero "Event viewer" errors on every restart.
    I have never had a BSOD and everything works perfectly.........but, on every other restart I am seeing "System error memory dump files" in the Disk Clean-up utility. The size varies. Currently it is 9.70mb but may change slightly if I reboot.
    Whenever I clean it, it returns. There are no dump files in my Windows folder. I really don't understand why I am seeing it.
    I have searched the internet for hours but all threads turn to BSOD issues. I have never had a BSOD, nor can I find this mysterious 9.70mb dump file. Can anyone shed any light onto what is happening?
    Thanks in advance.

    It's actually heath report, doesn't necessarily contain actual errors.
