    I had an inkling feeling my space was falling into some black hole I couldn't locate...
    Then I discovered that today after noticing a defrag hanging on one of them for a long time (meaning it's big). I've never turned on full memory dumps and I had no idea it was making them. I just know I crash TF2 a lot with the weird things I do, and sometimes it takes forever to actually exit, now I know why.

    Might wanna check yours :p

    They are memory dumps for debugging. The exact contents of the RAM that the given application was using at the time of the crash.

    Though a picture technically doesn't prove anything, as I could have just deleted everything, THEN taken the picture.

    I did actually have nothing in the folder though.
