    I guess that's useless....but make sure you back up the file first incase you need it back later...

    Yeah they're always the full size of your RAM if you have "complete memory dump" enabled.

    To Disable it :

    Control Panel/System > Advanced > Starup & Recovery - Settings > Write Debugging Information > Set it to small memory dump or none.

    It is really only for developers.
