Windows 7: Memory consumption when copying files / installing

Memory consumption when copying files / installing

Hi All,

I have a problem that whenever I start copying files or install a program, my physical memory consumption goes to 100%. When I look at the resources, not process seems to be using this memory.

I've tried to disable write-cache, it helps in a way that it takes windows a little more time to consume all memory.

After the copying is done the memory is released slowly.

Thanks for helping
