[1011/104000.093:ERROR:directory_reader_win.cc(43)] FindFirstFile: The system cannot find the path specified. (0x3)

This is inside that debug text file.
Please help me why it is being created and how to resolve it.

    @Rita Han - MSFT Don't forget that the new Edge browser will also generate this. I just found this thread because I had the same debug file from Edge.

    The debug file is created from all Chromium 68x based browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Brave Browser, Vivendi ...) randomly. There is now an issue entry in Google's bug tracker for Chromium. So I guess they will fix it soon in a new release.

    And maybe it helps to delete the content of the folder Crashpad.

    Chromium 68 browsers (Chrome, Edge etc.) create debug.log files
