Consider the following scenario:

• On a Windows Vista-based computer, you download some files from a network share to an offline folder.
• During this process, some network problems occur, such as a loss of the wireless connection or network congestion.

In this scenario, the files that you download are corrupted.

The corrupted files have the same file size and the same metadata as the original files on the network share. However, when you perform a binary compare, you find the files do not match the original files.

This problem occurs because of the mechanism of how the client-side caching (CSC) component handles the system-wide dummy page that the memory manager passes through the memory descriptor list (MDL). The CSC component illegally reads the data from an MDL that is not allocated by the CSC component. Therefore, when the MDL contains dummy pages, incorrect data is written to the hard disk.
