    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"

    Symptoms are RAM consumption maxing out the server... SQL - paging to disk a
    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
