if you're using the nt kernal, what cacheman does, is it takes memory that the os is putting to good use, it takes it out of this good use, so you can have a big number (an illusion) in available ram....xp allreadiyt has plenty of ram that it is using, ready and waiting for when you need it...chachman is not for the nt kernal
I didn't notice much of a change with or without the program. However, there were a few times when I used it to free up memory when my system was taxed and Windows wasn't releasing the RAM quick enough. I've got to agree with the others though... overall, XP handles memory well, so if you've got that OS, then there's not much use for Cacheman.
many times we are slowed down and we don't know it.
for instance, suppose we are on a day of optimization as far as xp is concerned.
well, you wouldn't even know how much slower optimization is proceeding without the resources that cache man is "freeing up"...or the indexing service...freeing ram slows down the background processes that you don't realize are going on more so then the foreground processes.
I've used O&O CleverCache v.4 and it works quite well, however I'm not using at the moment. It seems XP system resouces jump all over the place. I've found running fewer programs will reduce the chances of memory usage going up and down like a roller coaster. Haven't used Cacheman. After running numerous enhancment system programs I would agree with the best bet is to let the XP system manage its own memory in the long run.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
