Lately I've been having these annoying popups telling me I'm running out of memory, but I really don't understand it. I have 32GB of RAM and I'm currently using a little less than 8GB of it.
The popups don't indicate that I'm running out of virtual memory (paging file), but I do get system events saying e.g.
Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: Watch_Dogs_3dm.exe (8104) consumed 3199815680 bytes, uTorrent.exe (4380) consumed 237621248 bytes, and explorer.exe (3992) consumed 148795392 bytes.
Does anybody know how to fix this? My pagefile is managed automatically and is about 4GB in size currently. With so much spare RAM, I really don't get why Windows is using my slow disk (3 disk stripe, not that slow, but still). I put in enough so I can run games without closing my virtual machines, browsers, etc. I barely ever use over 24GB so I still have plenty room for the occasional spike.
Does anybody know a solution for this problem? I know I can manually set my pagefile to 64GB if need be, but I bought RAM to be used. My disks should only be used for storage, not for paging.
