Not enough server storage is available to process this command

I have a windows 7 box. Just updated to SP1. I have a .NET app that copys files from XP to windows 7 Share as a mapped drive. Logged in as an admin. It copies for a couple minutes then I get

System.IO.IOException: Not enough server storage is available to process this command.

Once this happens I can't access the mapped share any more in windows explorer. Just keep getting "Not enough server storage is available to process this command."

Happened a few times now so I open my code up in debugger.

last time this happened I trapped the error and was in Noticed this

Anybody know what could be causing the problem?

On the windows 7 Box I see this in event viewer

The server was unable to allocate from the system nonpaged pool because the server reached the configured limit for nonpaged pool allocations.

Google turns this up.
Windows 7 Nonpaged Pool Srv Error 2017 |

So I guess if I need to transfer files to my 7 box I have to configure as a file server. I have no intention of using this as a file server it's just that it is a new box and I need to transfer alot of files to it. Hope this helps others as well.

Win7 Ent x64 / Win7 Ult x86

Copy it in smaller amounts eg a few gig at a time.

Also, why are you using a .NET app. Why not just copy/paste with explorer?
If you have specific permissions on these folders then you could try XCOPY or Robocopy instead
