How to Delete System queued Windows Error Reporting files in Windows 10

Most of the times, when our system doesn’t respond on time or it is unable to fetch the resources required by a certain task to complete, Windows generates an error report. The generation of this error report is a type of feedback mechanism. System queued Windows Error Reporting files are generated due to some software or hardware problems.

To solve such issues, the reports are temporarily stored in the system. These reports are then sent to Microsoft to find the solution to the problem. Additionally, Microsoft keeps the log of such reports to fix them in future updates for other users. But, till the time our problem is solved, the report files stay in our system files and keep on increasing their size as the errors keep on coming.

The good news is, we can delete these report files anytime we want. Deleting those files may end up giving you a huge amount of storage back (sometimes in GB’s). Before we get started, let’s learn how these errors are solved?

Whenever a report is generated, it sends the error file to the WER (Windows Error Report) Server. If the solution is available to such a problem, the server sends it back.

If the solution isn’t available or the problem is under supervision then the user gets notified and may have to wait. This waiting time increases the file size of the report.
