Potential stutter fix

After dying from stutter, I checked my task manager.

My old, slow, HDD usage was at 100% even if EFT is installed on a SSD.

So, what was happening ?

EFT needed more memory than my RAM could offer and windows was redirecting the need to my HDD.

How ?

Pagefile in Windows 10 is a hidden system file that is stored on your computer’s system drive.

The Pagefile allows the computer to perform smoothly by reducing the workload of the physical memory, or RAM.

Every time you open more applications than the RAM on your PC can accommodate, the programs already present in the RAM are automatically transferred to the Pagefile.This process is technically called Paging.

Because the Pagefile works as a secondary RAM, many times it is also referred to as Virtual Memory.

That's maybe not the solution for YOUR stutters but it's worth checking:

> Desktop

> Right click start button

> System

> Advanced system settings

> Advanced tab

> Performance > Settings

> Advanced

> Virtual Memory > Change

> Uncheck Automatically manage paging file size for all drives checkbox

And then you can choose if you want or not use Virtual Memory.

No Virtual Memory :

Drive > "No paging file"

With Virtual Memory :

Drive > "Custom size" or "System managed size"

> Restart computer


I hope this can help some of you.
