    When I get a bsod and then boot to another snap-shot the Mini-dump is still there, and windows says "recover from an unexpected error".
    I thought booting to another snap-shot every thing was gone from the previous one? o_O

    Windows 7x 64

    Booting back and forth changes nothing. You have to update the snapshot..

    I'm not new to FirstDefense. I will try to explain again. I am in Primary snap-shot then I get a bsod, so I go (boot) to another snap-shot that Never had a bsod, the one that NEVER had a bsod reports that "Windows recover from a unexpected error" and a Mini-dump file is present in the snap-shot that never had a problem (bsod).

    I have some guesses, but am not sure. Lets see if Pandlouk comes along and can explain.

    It is normal behavior since FD-ISR excludes the pagefile.sys from the snapshots.

    I guessed around the edge, but thanks to Pandlouk, we know know for sure.

    Thank you Panagiotis, does this just happen on window 7 64bit? I can't recall this happening on XP-32.

    You are welcome Seven64.

    No, it happens in xp too. If right after the BSOD you boot in another snapshot that use the same pagefile the minidump will be recreated in that snapshot too. If after the BSOD you first reboot in the same snapshot and then to the alternate one, sometimes it happens and some other does not; it depends from wether the OS has rewrote in the pagefile area were the crash dump existed or not. The less memory(ram) the system has the less is the probability that you 'll encounter it, since it will use more often the pagefile to compensate; probably the reason that you never encountered it with xp.
