Default Smart Defrag 2.3 uses 150MB RAM

On XP Home it uses 150MB of memory according to task manager. High memory usage is usually noticed after the system has been running for several days. No changes have been made to SD's default settings, and this was seen on SD 2.2 as well. Automatic Defrag is enabled on 250GB partition of 500GB drive that has 50GB of space remaining. No other partition or drive has defrag enabled.

Hi cattledogit
By me it uses 20 Mb and generally less than 30% CPU - it did hit 75% once for a second.
Your free space numbers are not clear to me - do you have 50GB free space on the partition or do you have 50 GB free space on the entire harddisk
If it is the last you do not reach the recommended minimum of 15% free space.
With that amount of used space you probably have very many videoes saved.
I use XP too.
Cheers

Are you saying that you have the auto-defrag enabled and that over several days the memory consumption increases to this level (150MB)?

Also you have posted a statement. Do you have a particular question?

Thank you for your responses.

Is 150MB memory usage normal? I assumed that usage this high must be due to a bug or memory leak because CNET's review says "the program barely uses as much as 25MB of RAM" (http://download.cnet.com/Smart-Defra...-10759533.html).

If it's normal, I'll stop using auto-defrag.

I think so, at least I've never noticed high memory consumption in the first day or two after a restart. I'm not sure whether it always increases to 150MB after a few days.

50GB is free on the 250MB partition. The other partition is almost empty, at least for now.

Default Hi cattledogit.

Thanks for the information!!!

That is high RAM consumption for SmartDefrag and is not usual.

How long have you been using SmartDefrag? Have you been installing the new version over the top of the old one for awhile?

Sinverely,
-Mel
Live long and prosper!

I'll try uninstalling and reinstalling but I may have already tried that with the 2.2 version. I didn't use auto-defrag prior to 2.2, and 2.2 was my first 2.x version. I don't recall what version I had installed prior to 2.2.

I don't use any other memory optimiizers or other IObit products, just Smart Defrag.

Thanks!

I'd left SD running since my original post above, and just noticed that now "Mem Usage" is down to 8MB while VM Size remains at 157MB as before. Mem usage must have dropped in last 8 hours or so. Previously when I've seen high memory usage I've restarted SD so I haven't seen this behavior before.

I eventually uninstalled Smart Defrag and (re)installed v. 2.3. Currently Mem Usage is 155MB and VM Size is 160MB so the problem is still present.

Is there any explanation other than a possible memory leak?
