Error: Too Many File Handles Open.


I'm trying to restore a project in VSS and one of the files *.ini. Return for error "Too Many File Handles Open". Than VSS stop to restore project.
I search in Microsoft and I find:
Too many file handles open
This error has the following cause and solution:

You have too many files open at once.
Close some open files.
This error has the following cause and solution:

There are too many files open on your system.
You may want to check whether any of the files can be closed, or you may want to increase the files count in your operating system's initialization file.
I'm running Windows NT 4.0 SP6, I also try on W2K and I got the same "error".
I try, to increase the files handles in WINNT\System32\Config.nt
I changed Files=20 to Files=200. It did not do any good.

Any idear!!!
