Tip for anyone using Acronis with XP and/or Win7

After having some problems accessing shares across the platforms, I've found that Acronis products as well as others can be at the root. The cure seems to be something about increasing the IRPStackSize. I've True Image 9 on one (XP) and 10 on another (Win7) and receiving errors accessing XP shares from the Win7 machine until stumbling into this fix. A google search will quickly find the regedit way to correct for this. For me the size needed to be at least decimal 21. Hope that helps someone out there.

Additional information

The error generated in the event log of the device being accessed (server) states the stacksize is too small and to please increase it's size. The error generated from the device trying to access the share is that there's not enough server memory to complete the operation. Apparently this can happen with Norton products as well.

You posted twice here with a "how to turn on my SD card reader" request.

That's nothing to do with this discussion so I am deleting both.
