Recently, a storage problem has been discovered by PC gamers of Mortal Kombat 1, where the game generates crash reports that can consume a substantial amount of space, sometimes reaching up to 1GB or more. This issue has gained attention as more players are experiencing the same problem that impacts their hard drives.

As one player wrote, log folders were generated after each crash, leading to a folder size of 41.6 GB in their case. The game was creating 1.81 GB folders with every crash occurrence.

The crash reports generated by Mortal Kombat 1 are not automatically removed, to access the crash reports, affected users can navigate to the Crashes folder on their PC, located at C:Users[UserName]AppData/Local/MK12/Saved/Steam/Crashes. Furthermore, additional crash reports might be stored at C:Users[UserName]AppData/LocalCrash/Dumps.

Deleting the crash reports does not appear to have any adverse effects on the game or PC. Nevertheless, it is advisable to monitor the crash folder closely to prevent unintended storage loss. Cory Thalion, the WB Games Community Manager, has recognized the problem and assured players that it has been reported to the development team, saying "looking at it ASAP".

Previously, we reported on the large patch released by the developer of Mortal Kombat 1 that featured some crucial enhancements like visual and performance improvements.
