Cacheman 5.1 system utility can replace expensive computer RAM upgrades

Coberg, Germany– January 22, 2002, Outer Technologies software today announced the release of Cacheman 5.1 – a computer operating system performance enhancement and memory recovery utility. A frequent PC computer problem - especially for users of graphics, games, and other memory intensive applications - is that the system’s physical RAM becomes full, causing the operating system to save data to disk using the virtual hard drive memory, or paging file. The paging file is a great deal slower than physical RAM, so computer performance then suffers.

There are two options to limit or correct this problem – 1. Purchase and install more computer memory, or 2. Install and use the latest version of the low-cost Cacheman software to optimize RAM.

Cacheman adjusts the Disk Cache size of Windows to make additional RAM available, thus reducing paging file usage. Additionally it can periodically recover memory. Cacheman’s graphical user interface (GUI) and built-in wizards make it easy even for novice computer users. The new release of Cacheman features predefined system profiles, extreme recovery mode, “Recover Memory Now” hotkey, optional log size limit, and more.

“Back in 1996, I had only 32MB of memory and the slow paging file usage was killing my system performance,” says Thomas Reimann president of Outer Technologies, “I thought Windows was just that slow, but then discovered that the virtual memory manager and disk cache driver conflict with each other. The disk cache driver stored files in RAM while the virtual memory manager was swapping memory back to hard disk, resulting in very poor performance.” Reimann continues, “I knew there was a better way to manage memory, and after some research developed the first Windows Disk Cache utility. From version 1.0 to the current release, 5.1, Cacheman has become much more than just a Disk Cache utility, it’s now also a general performance enhancement and memory recovery utility.”
