Also called a crash dump or memory dump, a dump is raw data from a computer's memory. It is written to the file system if software crashes (terminates unexpectedly). This information is a snapshot of what was going on in the computer at the moment the error occurred. The dump can be analyzed by developers to help track down the error, understand it better, and fix it.
