Summary

The File Server Resource Manager (FSRM) file screening minifilter driver (Datascrn) intercepts file system calls and enforces file screening policies by rejecting I/O requests that would cause an unauthorized file to be saved on a folder or volume that is being screened. File screen enforcement and management require that the FSRM file screen minifilter is loaded. If the FSRM file screen minifilter driver is not loaded, Windows cannot perform file screen enforcement and management tasks.

Causes

This issue is rare. It most commonly happens on a computer that is experiencing a heavy load and runs out of memory (RAM).
