    Hi
    So, Windows Server 2003 SP1 had a hotfix, and it fixed the problem that the
    OS uses all RAM copying large files (500MB +) and now, Windows Server 2008
    SP1 has still got no wiser, but where's the hotfix??

    "You may experience a decrease in overall system performance when you are
    copying files that are larger than approximately 500 MB in Windows Server
    2003 SP1 or in Windows Server 2003 SP2"
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/920739/

    Symptoms are RAM consumption maxing out the server... SQL - paging to disk a
    lot.
    The OS has 8GB, of which SQL was allocated 6GB. The RAM usage grows when
    files are copied - until there is no more RAM available.

    OS: Windows Server 2008 64 bit SP1
    SQL: SQL Server 2008 SP1
