MS did not post that. Nonetheless, it seems that this is a resolved crisis.

Sinofsky:
Some have reported (as above) that this specific issue repros and then goes away with updated drivers. We haven’t yet confirmed that either but continue to try. We just kicked off overnight stress testing of 40 machines of variants as reported by FireRx. We’ll see.

"As above" refers to this:
FireRx:
After emailing back and forth with the VP Sinofsky, it was found that the chkdsk /r tool is not at fault here. It was simply a chipset controller issue. Please update you chipset drivers to the current driver from your motherboard manufacturer.

FireRX put words in Sinofsky's mouth.

I remember one of the biggest problems with an XP network I used to manage was with how nearly every user needed administrative access for running specific application's and how they could use the shutdown command to reboot/shutdown any machine on the network including the server simply because the shutdown command would only check for administrative access on the machine it was executed on and not the server, in comparison this issue or "bug" is not anywhere nearly as bad

Since the majority of users will be using the standard chipset drivers that come with Windows 7 and that they are the ones where this "bug" is present, I can only hope Windows 7 is rebuilt with its standard drivers capable of mitigating this resource bug, no one wants to see their machine using 3+gb of memory devoted for a simple disk check

To this point, MS is saying that the memory consumed is [total RAM less ~50MB].

This astute observation has been posted: The offending /r switch is not likely to be used during normal usage, rather it is more likely to be used for analysis or recovery purposes.

If you study this site, you will find a thorough examination of the phenomenon and knowledgeable reviews of the analysis. This study is not available elsewhere on the interwebs.

And that is not an opinion.

I just ran this on Windows 7100 RC 32-bit with the latest chipset drivers and can say it exists. But a "showstopper" ... not for me.

I don't run this (chkdsk /r or explorer->tools->check disk and select the "recover option") ever.

You should run it at some time. It is a simple tool and task that can prevent a mild defect from bringing down an install.

I tried to reproduce this and nothing wrong happened. chkdsk finished checking my external drive just fine. no "eating up all memory" happened. it must only affect some systems.

I found out the hard way with this bug. IT IS REAL believe me. I have never seen anything like it. 8GB of RAM and I got the your computer is out of memory message. Glad to hear they will deal with it.

There was some talk about it on a thread somewhere but I can't seem to find it. Must have been named something else...

Also, This is the case in build 7229 and the RC both in case this helps anyone.
