VCACHE (Simple)(r)...Here's how I feel I can explain the VCACHE scenario to you... (my words)This is basicly how it was explained to me by a "more knowledgeable" friend of mine...WINDOWS VCACHE SETTING BY DEFAULT...Begins to use VCache and as more apps (Windows) open uses more VCache. This has no limit and will use as much system RAM as is available for VCache. VCache will "push out" the old stuff to make room for the newer info that needs to be stored there.VCache is not purged, as system RAM is, therefore... the system will begin to bog-down as time and apps opening/closing goes on. This is another reason to restart the machine (Win9x based OS), pending usage, on a daily basis. This even applies to fixed numbers in the VCache setting. Better safe than sorry.WINDOWS VCACHE BY FIXED SETTINGS...As stated above, the same is true, but there is a fixed amount of RAM available for use by VCache. (not unlimited, or limited to system RAM) Therefore, system RAM will still be available for use by other apps.Hope this explains some of the "why"s...Seymore...¿± .
