2 lots of dump files?

When doing a disk cleanup I noticed that the items suggested for deletion included Debug Dump Files and System Error Memory Dump Files. Both were exactly the same size (>350MB), which makes me wonder if one is a duplicate of the other.

It's a fairly new computer which has only had one BSOD, and I knew about the memory dump and minidump files and where to find them. However, I can't find the Debug Dump File, nor do I know why it needs to be there as well as the memory dump.

Can anyone enlighten me, please? Also, if there is another BSOD, will the Debug Dump File be overwritten like the memory dump file is, or will I accumulate more of these rather large files?

Thanks - I'd seen that link and others like it, but it still doesn't answer the question of (a) whether this is a duplicate of the System Error Memory Dump files; (b) where these extra files are located; or (c) whether they will continue to accumulate or be overwritten at any subsequent BSOD.
