Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have one or more disks that are larger than 64 TB on a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You try to create a volume snapshot by using Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) on the computer.
  • A volume that is larger than 64 TB is selected to be the shadow copy storage area (also known as the "diff area").
In this scenario, you receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:
STOP: 0x00000050 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
Notes
  • This Stop error describes a PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA issue.
  • The parameters that are displayed in this Stop error message depend on the configuration of the computer.
  • Not all "0x00000050" Stop errors are caused by this issue.
