Re: filmscanners: PS6 and W2K: virtual memory on/off?


        If you're not very short on disk, the best thing to do
        - performance wise - is to use a constant size for the paging file.
        Otherwise it grows and shrinks as your applications require
        more and less memory, an operation that can be very time consuming.


        Settings => Control Panel => System => Advanced => Performance Options

        In the section "Virtual memory" you press the "Change..." button.

        (you already knew this, I realize that, but others may learn from it)

        Make sure that the fields "Initial size" and "Maximum size" are equal.
        Typically you choose 1-2 times the size of your RAM, the more the better
        of course if you can spare the disk space.

        Have fun,
