Quote from: Jibroni on December 06, 2019, 06:48:46 AMIf I have a problem with my video games stuttering or freezing every five seconds and it is due to an issue with virtual memory or ram, perhaps because the game keeps ending up using page file memory, would Smart Trim be able to mitigate this problem?
Quote from: edkiefer on December 06, 2019, 08:03:19 AMIf you're running out of free memory, then it might help, try it and see.You also might want to exclude the game in smarttrim config options.

He says he keeps having to increase his virtual memory and restarting it everytime or the micro freezing eventually comes back. He gets messages like ' running out of memory' sometimes.

Let the system manage its size, and make sure you keep some free disk space available for it to grow.SmartTrim can help with RAM use in some circumstances, but total virtual memory use (the larger issue) can not be artificially reduced without closing whatever apps are consuming so much memory.In some cases, certain web sites left open can cause browsers to endlessly consume memory. SmartTrim can help to proactively page out unused virtually memory (though it would eventually get paged out anyway), but memory that is actively referenced will get tossed right back into RAM.Use of SmartTrim should be conservative. You want your RAM to be fully utilized by important apps and cache since it is the fastest storage you have.
