Lots of paged pool memory is consumed when you click the Previous Versions tab after you create some snapshots of a volume on a Windows Server 2008 or a Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based computer

On a Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1)-based computer, you create some snapshots of a volume on the computer. You open the Properties dialog box of a shared folder on this volume, and then you click the Previous Versions tab. When you do this, lots of paged pool memory is suddenly consumed. This may cause a severe lack of paged pool memory on this volume.

Note: Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP-based computers that have hotfix 903234 installed do not encounter this problem.
