Great news! :D
After the lot of several improvements and fixes from Jerome Gardou (zefklop) in the memory manager (MM) and cache controller (CC), NTFS driver from Windows XP/2003 became work much more stable! In particular, now it is possible to copy (very) large files on NTFS partitions, even those that have larger size than the amount of RAM! 8-) For example, I managed to copy a self-expanding archive weighing 2.8 GB (!) (3DSMAX 2013 offline Installer) on 10 GB NTFS partition with 2.0 GB of RAM allocated to VM (see screenshot). The file has been copied successfully from the shared directory, without any BSODs and asserts! :D For comparison, earlier (2 months ago), copying any file of more than 900 MB size immediately caused BSOD (or sometimes a lot of assertions). Now - quite another thing! :)
IMPORTANT! For the correct working of this driver, as earlier, it is badly required to apply my PR #3400 (still not merged yet) and ThFabba's patch from CORE-10147. Without this, the driver will not work.

Very impressive, indeed as it proves the MM changes are really beneficial and working. We just need our own NTFS now!

That is promising. It will be also nice to test stability by extracting and copying a lot of small files (ReactOS source repo etc.) and running multiple copy operations in parallel.
