Should "Scan Disk" be using more than 10G of RAM in Windows 7?

Should "Scan Disk" be using more than 10G of RAM in Windows 7?

I have an USB external 1TB drive connected to my PC which is running Windows 7. I am doing an "erro-checking" on it, and I selected the "Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". After running for a few minutes I notices that the process is using up 10G of RAM on my 12G system. Why is that?

"This was a bug that was present in the RTM build but Microsoft didn't see it.

They seem to believe the cause was out of date/incompatible chipset drivers with Windows 7. The recommendation was to update your chipset drivers.

Microsoft gets personal on Windows 7 ""show stopper"" bug"
