Files copied to an NFS share are corrupted after you restart a Windows Server 2008 R2-based server

Symptoms
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a network file system (NFS) share on a Windows Server 2008 R2-based server.
  • You copy lots of files from a client computer to the NFS share.
  • You restart the server before you open the files.
In this scenario, some files are corrupted.
Cause
This issue occurs because the copied files on the server are not flushed completely during the NFS writing process.

Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notes
Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:
    VersionProductMilestoneService branch
    6.1.760 0.16xxxWindows Server 2008 R2RTMGDR
    6.1.760 0.21xxxWindows Server 2008 R2RTMLDR
    6.1.760 1.17xxxWindows Server 2008 R2SP1GDR
    6.1.760 1.22xxxWindows Server 2008 R2SP1LDR
  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 R2" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintaining the state of the updated component. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
