Event ID 4 - maximum file size for session has been reached

Postby guest » Mon Mar 26, 2012 8:34 am

I upgraded my machine to Win7 x64 Pro about 3 weeks ago. My HW is an Asus mobo, Intel Q9450 w/8GB RAM. The boot drives are two Raptors configured as RAID01. All the drivers are the latest available from Intel, Asus and 3rd party vendors. My WEI is 5.9, limited by the disk transfer rates, otherwise 7.1 and 7.2 on the other indexes.
I've been receiving these errors at boot;

My searches have turned up similar events listed but no solutions.
Any help would be appreciated.

I would like to know if you are able to boot into the system now and if the ReadyBoost is used.



To troubleshoot this issue, please check if it occurs in Safe mode first.



If it persists, try enabling the Superfetch service:



Start Superfetch service

===========================

1. Click the Start Button, type "services.msc" (without quotes) in Start Search box, and press Enter.

2. Double click the service "Superfetch".

3. Click on the "General" tab; make sure the "Startup Type" is "Automatic" or "Manual". Then please click the "Start" button under "Service Status" to start the service.

4. Click OK.

Hey guys, the solution is simple - just increase the max file size! Go to:



HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\ReadyBoot



The MaxFileSize key is a DWORD with a default decimal value of 20. Increase this to, say 60, and the problem will go away.
