Why does superfetch take up so much ram?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My computer has been on for 28 days as of right now, my svchost was up to 13xmb usage, I go into services, I take a chance and restart superfetch, it drops to 68mb usage, meaning I won't ever really have to restart my computer now that I learned that trick, but why, why does it take up so much ram?

No, that RAM is not really taken. It's pre-loaded, but is still available to other applications, so don't worry
