removing dump .dmp file

I'm completely unfamiliar with SAP maintenance and just asked by one of our client about growing SAP partition on windows server that almost full.

I checked with windirstat that there's a few .dmp files about 20gb each under D:\sapbackup\ and under C:\restore\sapbackup\

What are the right procedure to remove those .dmp files?

Thanks.

    Hi Umarzuki,

    could you please share what is the database you are using. how you have scheduled your backup.

    this seems your backup directory and if you are doing backup on these directory. then you should tape-out these data before safely remove.

    regards

    Dear Umarzuki,

    Hope you are doing good.

    Usually it is a IBM JVM core dump that creates a .dmp file.

    It would be a good idea to get this analyzed, as to why this is created. Otherwise, you can completely remove it as it does not serve any other purpose.

    Hope this helps.
