post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
any ideas? im using applications that require large amounts of memory and windows isnt freeing memory and the apps are giving me "out of memory" error's i have 16gb and 10gb is standby free is about 50-200mb and when it hits the 50-200 used windows just kinda cuts it off from using more rather than freeing up like it should.

Post a screenshot of Resource Monitor -> Memory. Sory by Private Memory.

Is your paging file on? What applications?

yes pagefile is on pagefile of 2gb (2,048mb) private memory lists 5 apps using 33-40mb 7 using 10-15 and all the rest are under 10mb and 65 tasks running

how would i go about limiting the "standby" memory at least? it doesnt need to use ALL the memory. currently its using 14,333mb standby and there is 30mb free

the applications im trying to use are for sorting large text based files (1gb+) and it loads pretty much the whole thing into memory so there must be at the least 1gb free for a 1gb file and there is 30mb free

i found that you can empty the standby list with ramMap from sysinternals so i guess while im working with these apps ill just have to keep emptying it and not let it get to high
