    PLESK Developer should read!!!!!

    IN Windows 2003 All of memory that can used is 4GB
    but in fact normal environment of windows 2003 system take 2GB of 4GB and left only 2GB for user application.

    Then when used PLESK Backup utility, process of backup utility will limit memory accress by 2GB.
    That reson why got error message "Exception of type System.OutOfMemoryException was thrown" when backup size reach 2GB.

    For more information read at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/171793/EN-US/

    This problem is fixed in 7.5.2 (though it is not as simple as fitting 2GB file into memory).

    I guess this problem in a bug in XML file that backup utility generated.

    SW-Soft have replaced a dll file to do with the backup prog, and they inform us this should fix the problem.

    We are running a backup now, so will advise if this seems to fix it.

    SW-Soft fixed the issue with this particular server, and you may need to contact them for the updated files needed.

    You will need to contact SW-Soft support for the fix for this, as they installed new files to get around the problem.

    You may try use Ms 3GB mode:


    /3GB Switch

    .NET Framework 1.1 supports a virtual space of 3 GB. If you put a /3GB switch in boot.ini, you can safely use 1,800 MB as an upper bound for the memory limit.

    You should use the /3GB switch with only the following operating systems:

    * Microsoft Windows Serverâ„¢ 2003
    * Microsoft Windows 2000 Advanced Server
    * Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Server
    * Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Enterprise Server

    You should not use the /3GB switch with the following operating systems:

    * Microsoft Windows 2000 Server
    * Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Server

    Windows 2000 Server and Windows NT 4.0 Server can only allocate 2 GB to user mode programs. If you use the /3GB switch with Windows 2000 Server or Windows NT 4.0 Server, you have 1 GB for kernel and 2 GB for user mode programs, so you lose 1 GB of address space.
