    If you have memory leak...


    I was searching for this answer years *Biggrin While it possibly wasn't memory leak at all. But memory compression. Everyone thought it was memory leak, when your free RAM is filled with standby memory. Your application crashes saying: there is no memory. When there is no free RAM left, Windows tries to compress memory to create space. This supposedly causing your applications to crash.

    Fix: How to enable memory compression Windows 10 - Super User

    You have to disable memory compression. I tested it on BF4, have 1MB RAM free, while using no page file and it doesn't crash. I had this disabled by default. Interesting, it was still issue in Windows 10. But they possibly turned that off. Which caused the problem...

    What an annoying issue, everyone had problems with this years. And it turns out, all Microsoft had to do was: to turn off memory compression.

    *Warning You should not turn this off, if you have 8GB, or less of RAM! Or you PC possibly crashes, or BSOD!!!

    Memory leak issue

    The term "memory leak" means that an application fails to return all its RAM to the operating system when it exits. The leftover RAM is unusable to the operating system.

    Step one is to identify the application that is leaking memory. Step two is to contact the application's developers and provide as much detailed data on the memory leak as you can. For example: which processes are still in RAM after the application exits
    and how much RAM they occupy. Application developers never want their applications to leak memory and they will be grateful for the details you provide, particularly if they can replicate the leak on their own computers.

    Possible Memory Leaks in Windows 10

    A memory leak occurs when an application closes and fails to release all its RAM back to the operating system.

    The first step in dealing with a memory leak is to determine which application is leaking memory.

    The next step is to contact that application's technical support with complete details of the memory leak, since the developers will want to fix the problem ASAP.

    Power Toys run memory leak

    There's nothing that anyone here can do about a memory leak. Only the developers of leaking software can fix leaks in their software. This is a community forum. I suggest posting your issue on MSDN.
