Windows 7: Not enough server storage

Perfect Solution

This was the perfect solution for the problem I was having. When I tried to access my WIN XP computer from my WIN 7 computer I received the error "not enough server storage is available to process this command." I followed the instruction to add the registry entry and 'Walla' it was resolved. Thanks for the info!!!! This was been a problem for weeks.

Error message: "Not enough server storage is available to process this command"

The solution worked for me also. I followed the info to update the registry and it worked first time. I set it to 20 nad stopped there. Thanks for the info also.!! Error message: "Not enough server storage is available to process this command"

I'd like to record my appreciation to those who have contributed to this thread. I have a laptop (W7), from which I access my desktop (XP). No problems until I had to rebuild the desktop. I restored everything to a new hard drive and it all worked - except for accessing the folders on the desktop from the laptop. I could see them OK, just couldn't open them. Kept getting the "Not enough server storage is available to process this command" message. I was tearing my hair out. This thread kept popping up in my searches, but it all sounded very obscure, so I kept looking and tearing more hair out. Anyway, I decided to try the fix from here, and it worked. I'll sleep better tonight! Many thanks.

Try bump IRPStackSize up to 50, then reboot and test access from the Win7 machines again. If that works, go down to 40, reboot, test. If that works, down to 30, reboot, test... The idea is to end up at around 3 to 5 above the point where you experience the onset of symptoms. That allows normal operation while limiting the memory consumption due to needlessly large IRPs.
I know this is old thread, but same issue just bit me. For others going through the process above, instead of rebooting after each change, you can restart the Server service (Start, Run, services.msc, scroll down to find and select name Server, click restart).

Edit: you have to restart the server service on the machine you just changed the IRPStackSize vetting on.

Note to everyone doing this though, is that while you can increase the IRP stack size, doing so can cause increases in usage of kernel memory pools, and (frankly) if you have to set it higher than the default, it might be worth thinking twice about how many security, backup, scanning, etc. programs that are installed and have registered filter drivers on the I/O stack. IRP == I/O Request Packet, and these are created for EVERY I/O request on the system - having more than a few here can cause system slowness, instability, etc.

If you need to increase it, think twice about what's installed before doing so. Do you really need 5+ filter drivers???

Will excess filter drivers slow down the host or client network thoughput, or the host drive access or both?

Do you have any simple commands/tools to identify what filter drivers are installed?

I did a search in AutoRuns of the process that include "filter driver" and found amdxata, BrFiltLo, BrFiltHi, btmhfs, LDIDFilt and LMouFilt. Without uninstalling my logitech mouse software, and knowing what the "Windows ME USB Mass-Storage Bulk-Only Lower Filter Driver" from Brother Industries is, not sure how I can reduce my filter drivers.
