Vista Out Of Memory when copying files in Windows Explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows Vista (Business) in a PC with 4 GB RAM and plenty of hardisk; When copying some large files from a FAT32 external hard drive to the Vista NTFS hardrive i ocasionally get "Out Of Memory - There is not enough memory to complete this operation." messages. Thereafter the PC becomes unstable needing a reboot.

    Any1 else encounter this, and have you come across a solution?

    By large files i mean > 500 MB, and i select them in groups of 10 or 20 and drag them from one Explorer window to another.

    Googling revealed this bug in Vista
    but am not sure if it applies to my scenario ?
