    Hello Everyone

    Has anyone tried both Ram Idle and Cacheman? We would like to know how they compare with each other. We are using Cacheman and although it had been rated highly it still does not work very well generally and crashes sometimes.

    Thank you for any comments.

  3. The Smoker program does not seem to mention defragmentation but it does mention that it will disrupt one's internet connection settings.
     
  4. Sorry - meant to say there does not seem to have much documentation regarding memory management.

    From looking at the documentation I would have to say ram Idle, But I don't usually recomend the use of any ram apps.

    I don't personally like any app that defrags ram in the slightest, and the freeing of ram is a subject that has as many cons as pros. So I stay away from them and I don't recomend them.


    I have done a bit of research on the subject in the past and that is where I get my opinion. But everyone should research any subject and form their own opinions.

    Before using Cacheman 98SE did not want to give back previously used ram but now that we are using it we at least can capture back some of it. We are also using a setting to release dll's after usage. We note a definite improvement by having it running as opposed to not having any memory helper.
