    High RAM usage after multiple system wakeups, stays at 65%


    Hello,

    I've been having this issue for quite a while.

    When I use my PC with multitasking and playing games. Then, I close everything, the RAM usage stays at 65% and I can't get it to the original state which is; like, 18%.

    That's of course cause more RAM usage when I want to open apps the next time.

    System restart solves everything.

    My system is windows 8.1 pro.

    I have a new laptop with windows 10 and I don't have this issue.

    After closing most powerful apps, the RAM and HDD go high.



    Even my HDD gets high usage and very busy in similar situations.

    I don't know, maybe after last windows update, it's better now.

    The RAM actually goes down after closing the apps.

    The screenshots I uploaded are before the update. I thought I would save time, because I didn't delete them. Then when you asked for a specific screenshot. I started to close the apps to and then I saw that the RAM got to 22% which is very good.

    Awesome

    Thank you very much for support.


    I have another question:
    How to delete windows.old?

    Disk cleanup doesn't work, because clearing previous windows files option doesn't exist.

    I saw different topics about changing system inherit permission.

    What's the best to do?
