Workplace Operator Station has been blocked with file OperateITTemp1\Dump\Exception.
I have a very disabling problem for some time, and I can no longer get out, let me explain:
My main hard drive is divided into two:
C: 40 GB Capacity
D: Capacity 270 GB
My problems are:
· - Windows telling me that the "C" was almost full.
· - Workplace Operator Station has been blocked.
· - The hard drive C starts saturates occasionally alone.
This seemed odd to me because I have not stored on "C" as many documents as that.
In fact when I select and check each file "C" and I look at their "Properties", I see that there's a file handle 20GB and is stored every minute 1GB.
In the end these problems happen 3 times on 2 different stations operators.
I am attaching a picture than indicate the file location and file what copied several times.
In the end the problem is in the file c $ \ OperateITTemp1 \ Dump \ Exception
it is automatically created for the file 3 stocage errors:

Dump on Exception has been enabled on which is not factory default -> please check with the person/organisation enabling DoE.
If you wish to stop collecting dumps (which will saturate disk without asking for your permission) follow this procedure:
Config Wizard -> [Press & Hold ALT-SHIFT] -> double click Diagnostics
Then set the Dump on Exception checkbox to the factory default "black cross on grey background" setting. This disables writing the voluminous memory dump files but keeps logging of the much lesser in size textual information from exceptions which sometimes can be very useful when fault tracing.
Please note that entering Diagnostics *without* the ALT-SHIFT cheat will make the dialog readonly which results in "black cross on grey background" to be shown even if the active setting is memory dumping enabled (black cross on white background).
No cross in checkbox = no memory dumps, no textual exception logging.
These are crash dump files and are created every time your workplace crashes.
Delete them. They are not needed. Only create dump files if you intend to report the problem to ABB support line.
A 40 GB C:\ drive partition is quite small, ( especially since you have so much space allocated to D:\ ) so it is important that you clean up or turn off these crash dump reports.
What are you using D:\ for ? what sort of server or client is this ?
