+1 Interesting concept, we'll consider it.

It's part of disabling access to the share.

Yes we have many other shares on this box, so that is a non-starter. One option we are considering is moving the files to a dedicated server where the full control issue goes away.

How would we close the open files?

Yes, that is correct. We currently disconnect any open files on the share. I believe this was done to prevent users from using already open files while changes were being done. These files aren't written to by the users, only read by the application.

Sounds interesting. What will this do to the files that the users have open on the share? Will they be able to continue using them? Will I be able to replace the files they had open?

Or find a technical solution that satisfies the speed, security, and labor requirements. :)

Every minute of downtime is a minute the application is inaccessible to the company. This has financial implications. They say they can't set it lower due to the excessive logging.

The infrastructure team doesn't want to be available every time we do an update, but they do want reduce our privileges. Their proposed method has us dropping a file in a folder and then waiting for a script that checks the folder every five minutes to detect the file and perform the required work. The method works, but the five minute delay is undesirable.

Those are “File Objects”, “Io parsing names”, “NTFS Specific CCB_DATA” and “Cache Manager Private Cache Map”. So I know what they are, but still have no idea why they are using more memory than normal.

This led me to see that Nonpaged Pool memory is using 2.4 GB, which in turn led me to poolmon.exe to determine what is using Nonpaged Pool memory. The top four consumers have tags of File, IoNm, Ntfc, and CcPc, so I am going to try figure out why those are so high.

Thanks for the update, but that explanation does not seem adequate. On systems with 10+GB of free memory and only 2111 MB listed in the processes list the graph is showing 4.49 GB in use, which would mean that more memory was being paged to disk than the total amount shown for all processes on the box. If this were just one system I would count it as a fluke, but I've seen it on all five I've looked at so far.

This is the exact opposite of what I am seeing. See the text in bold.

Our SA did it. I'm not sure how. It has always worked in the past.
