    Post MinFileCache and MaxFileCache

    i have in my vcache MinFileCache=32768 and MaxFileCache=32768 is this right? I have 128 RAM or should the MinFileCache be set to 0 , while keeping the max the same. any suggestions.

    here try this before you try that
    at the run command type "mem"
    take note of the memory usage
    next at the run command type
    "sysedit"
    click on the config.sys file and if theres nothing at all in it add this to it

    device=c:\windows\himem.sys
    device=c:\windows\emm386.exe noems
    dos=high,umb
    files=128
    devicehigh=c:\windows\setver.exe
    devicehigh=c:\windows\ifshlp.sys

    Save and restart your machine then repete the "mem" command you should see a noticable diff in memory usage then go play with these other settings. While most of the commands work primarly for Dos there are still some programs that have handles that go that way

    If your not sure about these you can get more info on these at http://search.support.microsoft.com/
    Another good place for info

    Yes just make sure that Himem.sys is first in the order of things or put all of that before your original info
