Re: filmscanners: Scanning and memory limits in Windows



Rather perversely the more you have the more likely you will not have a
program hogging enough memory to block the file cache from growing too big.

Upgrading to Win2K is an expensive solution if it is not necessary.

Further, in my experience of Win NT 4.0 the claimed reliability of desktop
PC's is a fallacy. At work I have used around a dozen PC's and all have been
much less reliable than my home PCs on Win9x.

This quite possibly as a lot to do with the skill of the person who set them
up :-)
