Windows Server 2008 High memory usage during copy process

Mc2102 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09

I have a Windows Server 2008 x64bit runs overall without a problem but when I copy a large file - lets say 15G to the server then the memory usage starts growing and growing until all 12G are used up and the server gets very very slow. I tried a bunch of diffrent things and I found several diffrent posts about this where people reported about this issue but none of the proposed fixes worked for me.

Does anybody has an idea how to fix the issue?

Thank you
