In Windows HELP, click Index, then type

dmp files

Then click 'Display' button.
That will give information about dump files, like so called minidump.

All that is rather useless because the data in dump files is for Advanced Users
How to Gather Information After a Memory Dump in Windows XP


Minidump Files

In that article it says
Microsoft® Office XP and Windows® XP create minidump files for the purpose of analyzing failures on customers' computers.

It is used by technical people to find causes of problems.
