This article is all about solved solution of not enough storage is available to process this command.


I am trying to install the driver for Microsoft Common Controller (64 bit) onto my New PC running windows 7 with 8 gigs of Ram, Intel Quad Core, and and about 920 gigs of available hard drive space.  I am running the file as the system andminstrator and that has helped me bypass the first error I was getting which would not let me run it before but then now I get an error saying NOT ENOUGH STORAGE IS AVAILABLE TO PROCESS THIS COMMAND?  Im lost and need some help!!!


To do this follow the steps below:

  1. Click on Start > Run > regedit & press Enter
  2. Find this key name HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\LanmanServer\Parameters
  3. Locate IRPStackSize
  4. If this value does not exist Right Click on Parameters key and Click on New > Dword Value and type in IRPStackSize under the name.
  5. The name of the value must be exactly (combination of uppercase and lowercase letters) the same as what I have above.
  6. Right Click on the IRPStackSize and click on Modify
  7. Select Decimal enter a value higher than 15(Maximum Value is 50 decimal) and Click Ok
  8. You can close the registry editor and restart your computer.
  9. Did it help?


You see the error message, 'Not enough storage available to process this command' on the screen, when the following operations fail:

Agent installation
Patch and asset scanning
Remote control
You see this error if the IRPStackSize registry entry on the client computer is set too low.
Not enough server storage


  • Click start>Run
  • Enter regedit
  • Click OK
  • Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters
  • Double-click parameters
  • Right-click on the IRPStackSize and click Modify
Note: If the IRPStackSize entry is not present in this subkey, follow the steps given below to create it:

  • Click Edit
  • Point to New
  • Click DWORD Value
  • Enter a name for the IRPStackSize value
  • Press Enter
Note: Enter a name for the IRPStackSize value exactly as it appears. The value name is case sensitive.

In the Value data field, enter a value larger than the original value
  • Click OK

Not enough server storage

Error messages:

  • Not enough server storage is available to process this command.
  • Not enough memory to complete transaction. Close some applications and retry.

These error messages on a computer, which we will call computer A, can indicate the IRPStackSize bug on the other machine, the server that has the share, which we will call computer B. Go to that other computer, B, open the event log, and check for event ID 2011. If this is present, it is a strong indication for this particular bug. 

The two computers again:

The computer trying to access a share on the other computer over the network, displays the error message, "Not enough …". Let's call this one the client.

The server where the share is, needs to have its IRPStackSize parameter increased. Let's call this one the server, even if it is just a desktop computer.

To repair it, you have to set or increase the IRPStackSize parameter in the registry on the server where the share is, i.e. on computer B.

There are many reports (below), indicating that a value of 15 is not enough, and only values in the range of 16 to 25 solved the problem.

The most successful values used to be 16 and 18, but recently we have more reports of 20 and more. If you want to solve the problem quickly, try 20.

It is not quite clear whether higher values incur any cost in terms of memory usage or performance, but it is conceivable that they don't. If so, then we probably should just set the value to its maximum of 50 and forget about it.

And don't forget to reboot after each change, because only that makes the new value effective. Thanks to everybody who tested and reported!

Please add a comment below to report which value you used to make it work. If you find the time to experiment, please report the lowest value that worked. Please try also to set it back to a lower value and recheck whether that indeed makes it fail. Reboot after each change.

Here is the offending registry value:

IRPStackSize DWORD 0x0000000f (15)

Check for the presence of the value named IRPStackSize. If it doesn't exist, create it as type DWORD and make sure you have the capitalization absolutely correct (5 upper case, 7 lower case characters), because the system strangely seems to depend on that. Make sure also that you haven't by mistake added a leading or trailing space as described in this comment below.

With base set to decimal, enter the value 16 or higher. 15 is the default, so entering 15 should have the same effect as removing that value altogether.

Reboot the computer (or restart the server service, as described in the comment below: Worked for me).

Certain software, when installed on the server, also causes this error. One frequent culprit is
Norton AntiVirus,
  • Acronis TrueImage, version 10 or 2009 or higher,
  • Seagate DiscWizard (a rebranded version of Acronis TrueImage),
  • IBM AntiVirus,
  • Microsoft's Bitdefender, and
  • Symantec EndPoint Protection (version 11+),
  • AVG 2011+.
  • Some reports state that only uninstalling solves the problem. If you have such a case, please report your findings here.
  • Check also this Microsoft Knowledge Base article. It does not mention Windows XP, but applies to XP as well.

Skype FIX: Not enough storage

First, try different Skype accounts if you have, ask some family members. If you can’t find it, you can try our own account folders that we used:  Skypefix.zip
  • Quit Skype.
  • Click “Start” then type or select “Run”.
  • Type “%appdata%\Skype” and press “Enter”.
  • Open your account folder named after your username in Skype.
  • Delete all folders, but make sure you leave all other files with extensions like db, xml, lck, db-journal.
  • Copy folders from other working Skype account (do not copy other files in root, just folders) or from Skypefix included.
  • Then right click selecting all folders set to “Read only”, click “OK”, if asked apply changes to folders, subfolders and files.
  • After that you should disable Skype automatic updates, because otherwise it will overwrite copied files and error will come again.

Not enough storage is available to process this command  Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

I am getting this error on a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit machine, on almost anything I do: updating a repo from subversion, accessing a local IIS site, copying a big folder, running an installer. Sometimes, if I try again, it get solved.

I think there is something wrong with Windows 7. I searched around and found posts suggesting to increase IRPStackSize value in registry I did that without luck. I am using Microsoft Security Essentials 1.0.1961.0 as my antivirus package.

Once this errors starts popping up, I have to restart and then after some random time it starts happening again.


  • Set the following registry key to ’1′: HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\LargeSystemCache

  • and set the following registry key to ’3′:

  • HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\Size
