IRP_MJ_DIRECTORY_CONTROL NO SUCH FILE

I am having performance issues with Exchange 2003.  We have made a huge number of improvements over the past 2 months and things are pretty much flying now.  However occasionally sending emails does cause Outlook to freeze.

One of the main improvements which correcting a rogue process which was creating thousands of temp files on the SBS 2003 server.

After finding this I ran filemon.exe on c:\windows\temp to see if there were any other processing constantly writing c:\windows\temp.  I found store.exe was creating around 15 requests a second to that directory.  I have attached the file process log.

Has anyone seen this error before and have any ideas how to correct it?

Thanks

Jon

Normal behaviour - created by IFS and temporarily writing mails there before processing.

Might be worthwhile making sure on your Exchange box that you aren't scanning the temp folders with AV - just let your other Exchange-based and file-server based AV handle it.

What about the part which states it can't find the file?

That's normal behaviour with filemon.

Apps have a tendency to look through the temp folder paths until they find or have to create a file.
