In Vista what is exactly stored in FileRepository?

Was curiuous about what is exactly stored in FileRepository? it seems to take a lot of space inside the windows folder. i am using Vista home basic and the size of this folder is about 1GB, the exact path would be: C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

i would not say that the system is slow, however i have a hang of working on networked enviorment with XP and it is definately faster. my system config would be:
Proc: AMD Turion 64X2 1.90GHz

If your system is slow, then use disk cleanup and defrag very often. The file repository is a collection of drivers for many different devices and programs.

Cannot connect to networked computer: Error - "not enough storage space to process this command"

Okay, first a bit of "techie" information. When you print you send a file to the "print spooler" on the system handling the printing. In your case, that is Workstation 2. That file can be quite large and if there are several sent at once it can take up a lot of room. Once the system finishes printing it then clears out that space on the hard drive. Second, because you also use that for a file storage it may be that a lot of files are stored on that system either permanently or temporarily. So....the answer is that you are probably temporarily running out of disk space.

The reason you IRPStackSize increase worked is that you set aside more space for that stack so the system could hand incoming data more easily ...which meant it could sometimes delay a disk write enough to avoid a printing error.

The solution is to either increase the hard drive capacity of the system or to move the printing or customer files to another system on the network.

Of course, I could be wrong about this....;>) but it's the first thing that occurred to me.

Go back to where you purchased the "genuine" copy of Microsoft Windows Vista (either retail store or authorized online store) and you should find the 25-character product-key.

Vista has a slover speed of processing and uses a lot RAM why?

Vista is more graphics-intensive out of the box. If you go to Control Panel, then to Performance Information and Tools, you can get an idea of what your PC is capable of, and adjust it to your liking (or just click "Adjust for best performance"). I suggest starting with "Adjust visual effects" on the left, turn them all down. Indexing can eat up RAM too, but be warned that if you turn that off it will take your computer longer to find files.
