Ram Tool

Recommended Posts

Those things never work. The idea you can "clean" or "defragment" your RAM is a common Windows myth.

 

 

So if my process meter was at 42% and I used this tool and now it's been running at 32% for the past hour then I'm just seeing something that isn't there. Just curious

Like in what way? Havent noticed anything different to be honest deffinate not any slower. I would think that regaining some of your ram leak back would improve things. Still on 32%

Your pagefile and RAM was most likely freed of memory by an application closing or being minimized.

They don't work and they slow down your computer is absolutely true. The real solution is to just buy more RAM instead of using placebo tools that don't do squat.

I would also stay away from any such tools.

Unless you're really squeezed for RAM (in which case get more), what's the point? ... to see how much of your RAM you can avoid using? :D
