Data recovery after blue-screen.

Is there any way to recover files from a memory dump from a bluescreen. My computer bluescreened while I was working on a project stored in a ramdisk and dumped everything in ram to a .sys file. the OS was Windows Server 2019 its not bootable anymore due to the corruption of essential system files.

Normally the memory dump in windows is just the kernel, not the whole ram.

 

Do you have a copy of the ramdisk? You can try searching it, but this might be a pain.

 

What ramdisk software?

The dump size is larger then total ram usage

I have a copy of the old image but it is an old version as ramdisk updates the image when you turn it off

Did you try searching the dump? Thats gonna be a pain though. 

 

You can probalby get the data if you have a full ram disk during the bsod, but this won't be that easy, esp if you haven't dealt with this before.
