I replicated it on 64 bit. Using a dual core, 4GB RAM. My C: drive is a RAID 0 setup, which wasn't affected with the bug. My D: drive, which I managed to replicate it on is just a single 500GB SATA drive. You can see the RAM usage shooting up from the screenshot I posted on the first page of this thread.

I replicated the issue as soon as the chkdsk begun. The RAM began climbing from the start, then at stage 4 was when it peaked at 89% usage.

There is nothing wrong with a process maximizing its use of available resources, memory or processor, if those resources are not needed by other processes.

In fact it is a waste if the OS does not allow a process acess to idle resources to complete its task as fast as possible. That is the purpose of the resources.

Dynamic "Working Set" allocation has been around since virtual memory OSes were created (i.e. DEC VAX/VMS was amont the earlier OSes)

It is only a problem if a poorly coded process attempts manual working set control and does not relenquish or share resources.

Google "windows working set usage" for more info.

I agree there is nothing wrong with it, but this isn't by design. They have a memory leak. No biggy, they have time to fix it...
