I have been having trouble running my backups on my exchange server 2007. I recieve an error because it can't create the snapshot to do the backup.  I get the following logged in the event Log

Event Type: Error
Event Source: VolSNAP
Event ID:21
Descriptions: the flush and hold operation for bolume *** was aborted because of low available system memory.

In doing a search for this error i found this artcile which said to remove the /3gb swtich.

I just want to make sure i won't be loosing memory by doing so.
